I just got my pfsense up
I would to thank everyone who help me with all my novice questions about the router initially. Well just a heads up a few more incoming =)
1. I installed the pfsense now can I remove the cd-rom drive update future firmwares from the webgui page?
2. I plan to add a wireless USB adapter for WIFI on my pfsense will it auto detect if it compatible or do I have to do something like a reinstall?
(any recommendation on WIFI USB)
thank you again.
I tried making a boot from USB drive but in BIOs I didn't have the option to set it to boot from USB after reset only the typical cd/hdd/ethernet. However, if I manually press boot-key it'll give me USB device.
I wish to remove HDD to go with USB so my question is it because my hardware is old?

Avoid USB adapters, get an atheros freebsd supported wireless driver. I ran pfSense on an athlon 1.2GHz and it was consuming over a hundred watts of power and noisy as heck, you should get a fanless low power pc.
Updating is troublesome for me, I had to remove the CF card or re-install from scratch to be safe.
Yes, as above. Get a Atheros based wireless PCI card, G-based as wireless N are not yet supported. I would suggest not getting the Ralink based (Linksys) due to compatibility or unstability issue.
