    Best freebie from a course you've taken?

    I also agree that SANS in-person is the better format. Not only do you have awesome instructors, but you have classmates that you can bounce ideas off of, etc. I took 503 online and found myself wishing I would have done another live event. I did 502 at SANS Rocky Mountain in '08 and got much...

    is there any easy to use router/firewall software ???

    Untangle will definitely allow for everything you want to long as you have the hardware to run it. I push 100's of people through UT every day without a hiccup on a 20/20Mbps connection.

    Prevent employees from bringing personal laptops and connecting to the network?

    If this shop is as small as it sounds (no money for a "real" solution, no managed network gear, etc.), and they are not using wireless, why not just unplug the patch cords on the network gear from the network jacks that are being abused? Essentially a hardware disable on all unused network...
