ADSL router



  • Would PFv2 have the drivers and programming to work with http://www.rocksolidelectronics.com/pages/products/g2.php



  • Presumably you want to run pfSense IN the G2. (Datasheet says G2 has x86 CPU: AMD Geode). In which the answer is MAYBE but (my guess) probably not. The datasheet doesn't say what the two LAN adapters are. FreeBSD supports a wide range of LAN adapters so they PROBABLY won't be an issue. I'd be more concerned about support for the ADSL interfaces.  Support for the wireless devices could also be an issue as the FreeBSD support is not as extensive as the Linux support. It appears there are Linux drivers for all the interfaces so it would probably be fairly straightforward (but non trivial) to port the Linux drivers to FreeBSD. (Not sure about licensing issues.)

    But maybe just want to use the G2 as an ADSL modem and run pfSense in another box. In which case there shouldn't be any problems since pfSense already interfaces to a wide range of ADSL modems and ADSL modem/routers over Ethernet.



  • Main thing for me would be that is has the PPPOA and vci and vpi setting for the ADSL etc.

    Have you asked rocksolidelectronics.com?
