Multi Wan and Speeds

  • I would like to build a WAN system that contains as many NIC's as Possible.  However, I can only put two ports per PCI slot, so i seem to be limited.  Is there decently cheap server software that can accomplish this task?  Also for going ~100mbit/s (Combined on torrents or other software) how fast should the CPU and Ram be on the server?  Thanks for the help guys! Love the forum.

    What do you want to do??? Hence the need for as manyu NIC's as pssible….

    Why not VLAN??

  • See the RAM and CPU requirement depends on how many users will be working beehind pfsense.

  • Will each NIC be connected to a separate modem, or are all of the WAN connections going out through the same cat5 line (like the internet accounts at my apartment building)?
