Pfsense + WAP + future proofing on an atom?
Partly to learn, partly to protect the kids I want to build a Pfsense box running snort and squid. I've got a spare AWUS036H which I understand could be used as an AP with Pfsense… The sticking point is the cable modem is in our bedroom, so I need a quite system.
- Would an atom be up to running Pfsense with snort + squid for 5 users?
- Would this have enough power to be future proof (i.e. version 2 etc)?
- If so are there any recommendations for a quite or fanless motherboard please?
Device will need 2 Nics, and I'll obviously use the AWUS036H as an AP.
Thanks in advance
that should be more than enough
I have a 1/15 (get 1/25 though) cable and have no issues what so every
I dont use snort however, just squid.
I am using an old Via C7 @ 1GHz
I would look towards mini ITX solutions.
You will most likely need to buy a second NIC as most only have 1 integrated into the motherboard
Intel NICs are you best choice.
can you please give me a link that show how to configure the AWUS036H as AP?
Which PFsense version supports AWUS036H ?
