Adding more ports
I came across the MikroTik crs125-24g-1s-2hnd-in and I'm wondering if we could do something similar. Maybe not 24 ports, but maybe a bank of 8 or 12 ports that group together as a switch. Obviously it would need more firepower than this model as a single 600mhz CPU isn't going to cut it in the real world, but I wonder how they manage to get in 24 gigabit ports at $200. Even if we could add a bunch of ports are we able to bind them together into a single switch?
Hmmm. Are we able to install pfSense onto MikroTik equipment? Even if not this model they make some inexpensive stuff and it's all built on Linux.
