Can pfSense be used to make an cheap AirPort Extreme !!
i was wondering if Pfsense could be deployed on a cheap old system to make a poor mans AirPort Extreme (apple's router+ usb drive share + printer share) ?? AirPort Extreme besides being a router can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network. plus it can even connect a printer and share it wirelessly .(see attachment)
I dont want to use pfsense as a firewall at all. basically as secure or unsecure as Apple Express .

I think you are looking for this:
agree but does the freenas also bundle as a wifi router (like the airport extreme does) ?
In fact someone in the post below claims of freenas router all in one bundle
If you're using older hardware I suggest you use nas4free (branched from an old version of freenas) instead. Its hardware requirements are far lower.
