Best pfsense hardware for traffic shaping only bridged mode



  • I am looking for a router just to do traffic shaping since I can't do traffic shaping on my router because it has multi lan setup.
    I have looked at J1900 based mini pc and 3215U mini pc but I think that might be overkill for my needs. I have looked at NETGATE SG-1000 but it can't do more than 100mbps. I am looking for something that that do at least 1Gbps in bridged mode but is also compact/affordable and isn't too power hungry.

    Yes, the 3215U is overkill, but you won't find anything much cheaper than will handle the load. Maybe an APU2.
