New setup (and a new user)



  • Hi Guys,

    Been looking into the forums a lot lately (lots of reading) but would like some validation on whenever I'm on the right track.

    What I have ordered/collected so far:
    ASRock J3355B-ITX
    2x4GB DDR3
    240GB SSD
    Intel i350-T4 (quad nic)
    Pico-psu

    Questions:

    1. Will this be able to process my full internet connection (400/40) with packet inspection?
    2. Only have one PCI-E slot which is used for the network card, is there any good alternative to include WiFi as well? Or will an external AP be the best option?

    Thanks for your time.

    1. Yes it will.
    2. You could use a USB device but a separate AP will be far better in almost every respect.

    Thanks Steve.
    I'll go with the separate AP then.
