Need some advice on hardware.



  • I need some info/advice on CPU and RAM for a pfsense box…

    Will be used to load balance 4x2mb adsl lines (4 adsl modem-routers), QoS, DHCP and captive portal for a WiFi net… (Access Point will be a linksys on ethernet).
    should have around 50-100(max) clients on it. :)

    Most likely the ethernet cards will be intel since they seem to work nicely with bsd...

    any help greatly appreciated! :)



  • I would start looking at something around >500MHz. I also would recommend 256 MB RAM or more.

    QoS will only be available at 2 interfaces, just in case you don't know about that limitation and planned to use it at all interfaces.
