SonicWall TZ170 is easy. I had a new customer move their biz from FL to NC
last October. They had a TZ170. It locked up. I did a factory default and
had it programmed for operation including updated firmware in an hour.
They've really done a good job making them easy to use.
I can't remember the exact sequence for factory reset yet think you have to
push in a button with a paper clip while powering on or something like that.
I can email the *.bin (current firmware) if you like.
Their tech support is pretty good yet takes forever to reach. Here's their
support site specifically for the TZ170:
Good luck. Holler if you need a hand. Will work for beer.
