    Just wondering if this is possible in any way. I can get to the router via the web interface, but would like to (possibly) have some more control over the settings, so I'm hoping telnet would work. I've tried telnetting to the device, but I keep getting "Connection Refused" errors.

    Is there a setting I need to change on the command line side to enable telnet connections?

    Or do I need to upgrade the device, and if so, will going to an rv220w be enough, or do I have to go with higher-end stuff?

    You're certainly asking a lot from a consumer grade router.

    Typically, the consumer grade and even the enterprise/business class routers are built around some sort of Linux/Unix/Posix type core. The amount of functionality you get is based on the amount of effort they've spent in customizing the OS. You're not going to find CLI access on consumer grade stuff as the market doesn't demand it. Your best option if you really want this is to see if there is a hack firmware that gives you this feature.

    Incidentally, SonicWall never really provided a CLI. They have a very basic one but they're adding a full function CLI in future firmware releases.
