The numbers stated in the following sections can be increased slightly for quality NICs, and decreased (possibly substantially) with low quality NICs. All of the following numbers also assume no packages are installed.
10-20 Mbps We recommend a modern (less than 4 year old) Intel or AMD CPU clocked at at least 500MHz. 21-100 Mbps We recommend a modern 1.0 GHz Intel or AMD CPU. 101-500 Mbps No less than a modern Intel or AMD CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz. Server class hardware with PCI-e network adapters, or newer desktop hardware with PCI-e network adapters. 501+ Mbps Multiple cores at > 2.0GHz are required. Server class hardware with PCI-e network adapters.
imsure you said you have 100 down 50up and asked about system requirements
Intel is allways a better less problems better in all ways.
Is that 100-150 dollars?
100Mbps throughput is not a hard target to reach, almost anything should pass that.
If you need packages or in particular VPNs that becomes more difficult.
Yeah maybe that is the price he willing to pay for the box?
Since 100mbps down and 100+ clients wouldn't be a very good connection anyway. Users would just use their phones data plan unless they like to watch paint dry ;)
As stated you could prob get 100mbps using old ti-99 if freebsd would run on it ;)
@johnpoz Ooo challenge...

@strike101 With that user count and speed the Netgate SG-1000 might be tempting.
Price @ $150
