Manage that Bandwidth

The feature that could really make potential buyers take a second look at the TZW is its bandwidth management features shown in Figures 3 and 4.

You can set both the total bandwidth used by the TZW and control the bandwidth of each service, i.e. FTP, HTTP, etc. You can also set the bandwidth allocated to VPN use.

Unfortunately, you can't control bandwidth by user or LAN type (Ethernet or wireless) and the controls apply to outbound traffic only. Still, given that bandwidth control generally isn't available in this class of router, I applaud Sonicwall for taking these first steps and hope that the bandwidth management features - especially control of individual users - will be enhanced in future firmware revisions.
