I found an old box in my garage and it contains a 'sonicwall' device. It looks like a huge router but I am unsure what it does. Do I hook it up between my modem and router and it somehow provides secure protection?

What is it and what is its purpose?

Also, what protection does it provide?

SonicWall is a company, now owned by Dell, that makes security appliances.


I am fairly certain you can find the specifics for any device you own on Dell's website or at sonicwall.com.
