    Default z4w replacement

    Good Evening,

    I was going to purchase the z4 wireless model however, I see that it is no longer available.

    What is a comparable model that I should be looking at? If none from Untangle, other vendors?

    Thank you,

    -MW

    If you can wait a couple of weeks, we will have a replacement for the z4w with much better wireless.

    He doesn't have a wireless version. IMO the best solution is to have a FW & then switch and ap's.

    I dont disagree with you however, i dont want to spend that much on devices for the in-laws. A single supported box from Untange will suffice.

    My concern would be support and warranty. While there is no getting around inexpensive overseas products, I much prefer the idea of supporting a company I like (Untangle) and leveraging their support where warranted.

    If you have a link, I wouldnt mind taking a look though.

    Thanks,

    I don't have a wireless solution, because to be honest... they're all trash. Yes, using dedicated WAPs is flat better AND less expensive, especially now with HP's Aruba Instant On stuff.

    But worse so than that, I don't have any hardware at all. Every single distributor, every single contact, every means I have at my disposal... and it amounts to nothing. I cannot get hardware from ANYONE that isn't peddling substandard crap.

    Jim and I are about to start getting creative, I'm not happy with what we've got on the horizon but at least we'll have something.

    The pandemic is all but destroyed the SOC market unless you're a large enough player to place orders for hundreds of units and willing to wait six months.
