Any info on the Netgear C7800-100NAS Nighthawk X4S?



  • Hi all,

    Just picked up Comcast's Gigabit service for the home office and decided to invest in the Netgear C7800 cable modem/wifi router combo. It's fairly new, and I can't seem to find any information regarding compatibility with pfsense.

    I know some of the Nighthawk routers have pfsense compatibility - does anyone know anything about this new C7800? I'd love to find a way to get my home network locked down tight without having to add another hardware appliance, if at all possible. I do have an R510 I'm adding to the homelab this week that could serve up a small VM for pfsense, but I'd like to get the firewall a little farther up the line, if that makes sense.

    Thanks in advance for any help/advice!

    …Netgear C7800 ... compatibility with pfsense.

    They both should be IEEE802 compatible. Other than that you will not have pfSense running on that device - if that's your question. pfSense is not OpenWRT or such.
