I have been using pfSense for a good couple of years and all is great.
Running off a 500mhz Celeron with 256mb RAM I think.
Having moved recently, I left my existing setup with my parents, and currently stuck with an Actiontec GT704-WG modem/router
which I frequently wonder if it is good enough to handle my downloads
After visiting the recommended hardware page, I caught my eye on the Netgate m1n1wall firewall
One of the cheapest ready to go system I have come across
it has the 128mb ram that is strongly recommended and I can always switch out the CF for a microdrive later on the road.
What I'm looking for is a basic router/firewall for home use, able to handle up to 10 users (when I decide to offload somewhere else), able to handle a 5Mb (megabit) connection and a lot of connections for torrents
So does anyone have any experience with the Netgate m1n1wall using pfSense?
The only machines I have with me are laptops, so no serial port, but I can always take the Netgate with me to work and get it setup there, hopefully it isn't too much trouble to do so on a Linux box.
