Appliance recommendation and the design
I'm still struggling on which device I should get and how to properly design the network.
I would like to be able to filter the in and out of the network, block ads (pfblockerng), block phone home 3rd party applications, view a siem like flow, maybe suricata or snort but this might be more complicated and maybe not useful for home use.
I also use Windscribe VPN at the moment. Does the VPN in pfSense as anything to do with this?
I believe I need 3 networks that doesn't talk to eachother but I might want to manage the cameras and lights from the iPhone…
1- Main computers and gaming consoles (imac, mbp, iPhone)
2- IoT - cameras or connected light bulbs Philips hue
3- reverse malware engineering laptop
Current appliances: modem, apple time capsule, 2 x TP-LINK TL-SG108 (they are not used at the moment) and a D-LINK DIR-655 (not used at the moment).
What should I buy: a sg-1000, sg-2220, sg-2440 (hoping that the sg-1000 would be enough, it's more in my price range! :))
Thanks for the input
My current Time Capsule doesn't give me any flexibility… It works but I can't see whats coming in and out of the network and can't isolate the devices...
