Firewall with no nics? just usb-to-ethernet?

  • Could I use two usb 1.1 to ethernet adapters for a pfsense firewall?  The linksys model I have is supported under freebsd.  Thanks.

  • try it with the LiveCD.

    I never had any luck with usb on freebsd.  performance of usb is probably quite bad.

  • Performance will be poor but if the nics work with freebsd they will work with pfSense. However, most (or even al?) usb-nics don't support altq shaping so you will have to live without the trafficshaper.
