    Your not going to be able to run pfsense on some soho wifi router.

    But you can run it on pretty much any sort of OLD pc, or you could run it as a VM using pretty much any virtualization software. You for sure could run it on some say old enterprise firewall hardware you got of ebay or something.

    But no your typical off the shelf wifi router is not going to be able to run it.
