    Hard to recommend something if you don't tell us what you are going to use the firewall for. Are you using it to filter packets, restrict access and/or setup VPNs? Or do you simply want to stop traffic to your box and close specific ports?

    If you're thinking the latter, kill all unneeded services on your box and use iptables. Cheap & simple solution.

    Hardware Firewall

    wow, it's been awhile...

    I need hardware firewall as well. I just need something simple that I plug in my uplink, and from the other side, I get filtered traffic on our static IPs.

    No VPN or anything fancy, something that just filters out attacks to static IPs of each server.

    could someone please recommend something? maybe a symantec?

    There are three Hardware Firewalls that you can look at. Paste them in google and read that them.

    Thanks
