Hello all. I am hoping to get a little advice on a setup for my home. I need to warn you all that I am FAR from a networking genius =)
Currently I have a V1.1 WRVS4400N that serves up my main wireless network. The SSID is hidden, and this is only used for my personal devices (phones, computers, tablets, home automation gear, etc...). I have two VLAN's setup. One goes to my "network" which consists of a couple large switches and all my home automation gear and hardwired PC's. The other VLAN is a single port that is connect to a Linksys WRT54g (awesome, I know). This serves up a "Guest Network" that friends and family can use to get online, but can't access all my fireshares and devices living on the network.
I have heard about PF Sense and some of it's capabilities, and have been toying around with copying a system I read about using a SuperMicro rackmount PC. I haven't had time to take on the project. What I have right now works for the most part, but it's messy and I don't have a VPN that I can use from my Android phone or tablets. I want to clean this whole thing up, do it right, and gain VPN access at the same time.
A friend turned me on to this box:http://store.netgate.com/-P218.aspx and I'm wondering if that will do what I need. Also wondering, how from that point I would gain the two wireless networks.
Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for reading through this super long first post =)
