Hardware based firewall

Can you guys suggest me a good hardware based dedicated firewall with VPN built-in for a small business? I need something which is very easy to set up and configure, for about 10 users with a good web based set up interface. I am not much of a *nix guy, so I don't want to to set up a linux machine or anything. I want something which is not very expensive, easy to set up, with a good web interface. Something like Sonicwall offers. Any other suggestions/recommendations?

Netgear, Linksys, and DLink all have products that fit this desciption, i think.

Your needs are a very close match for Netgear FSV318. I am using this for my home network. I haven't used the VPN features, but people have reported good results on usenet groups. As with any hardware appliance, you might have to update the firmware depending on your setup.

Netscreen 5 works well as well.

ZyXEL's ZyWall would fit your description as well.
