I used this as a guide to install  https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Installing_pfSense

To write images: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Writing_Disk_Images   - Image Writer for Windows / Win32 Disk Imager is much easier to SSD.
I just plugged in my wan when setup asked to plug in my wan cable and same for lan.

Thanks, that guide is useful although I plan to install 2.4 straight away. From what I read 2.4 uses a different install type:

https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/2.4_New_Features_and_Changes#Operating_System_.2F_Architecture_changes

I'm just planning ahead to see what will be the best combination of media on which to install on in terms of SSD (and if size?) or USB keys (if so 1 or 2 keys and what size?). I'll ask a question on the 2.4.0 ZFS How To thread.

Use a SSD, I had a spare 120GB Kingston hyperx that I was planning to use for a different project.
To install, any drive, I used a 4GB sandisk usb 2.0 that I bought many years ago.

Mine were out of order too and I had to swich them using Option 2 on th PfSence unit. Used the MAC to figure out the order. Mine was ordered 1, 4, 2, 3.

Mine were also out of order. igb0 is 1 and igb1 is 4.

What is this "Option 2" method you speak of for changing them?

Same here for NICs, exactly same order.

Ordered: QOTOM Q355G4 I5 5250U 8GB RAM 120GB SSD
Delivery: 15-28 days

I will report after I receive it and install pfSense on the box.  I plan to install OpenVPN client and compare the bandwidth against my laptop.
