PFsense for Gig service
Currently I run an R6250 router and have moderate issues with both lockups and latency over time. Once I reboot all is well. The issue is I have try Gig service as I live in Chattanooga TN and its provided but EPB Fiber Optics. We have around 5-8 machines on at a time in the house.
I would like to have a firewall that can actually run throughput for the full gig. Right now speedtests vary from 300-700 depending on how long the router has been up.
What kind of specs should I be looking at in building a sense box to achieve gig reliably?
What packages do you want to run? (If any)
Do you just want a simple router? Or are you looking at snort/suricata/squid/havp? What about vpn?
