This OK for home network?



  • Hello guys, I live in Hong Kong and getting some of these deals off amazon out here can be hard. I found something on taobao that looks like it would work (and a good price too) but before I buy I wanted to ask here first.

    This is for my home network getting a full 1000 through, and would also like to run a few programs like snort, VPNs and python for sshuttle (great at getting around the GFW when i'm in china)

  • Highly doubt the D510 is going to be able to handle 1Gbit/s. WAN only utilizes 1CPU and the single thread performance of this CPU is low.

    EDIT:

    Looking through the forum, it seems you'll be lucky to get even half the speed you're looking for. Most benchmarks are in the 200Mbit-400Mbit range.

    If you are able to spend more money then your choice (¥ 690.00) and you might be having luck
    to get your hands on this board or complete PC you would be get a strong platform that is capable
    to handle 1 GBit/s on the WAN Port and Snort proper together.

    Board:
    Jetway NF9HG-2930
    US $199.95
    大約 HK$ 1,549.63

    Complete box:
    4 Intel GB LAN Ports
    US $289.95
    大約 HK$ 2,247.13
    5 Intel GB LAN Ports
    US $319.95
    大約 HK$ 2,479.64

    • 4 Core Intel Celeron @2,16GHz
    • 2 miniPCIe & SIM slot (mSATA, Modem, WiFi)
    • 4 or 5 Intel GB LAN Ports
    • max. 8 GB RAM

    Strong enough to serve you many years with ease, maybe with Squid + SquidGuard & Sarg on top.
    Jetway Mainboard JNF9HB-2930 board for ~254 € or 1.770 Renminbi (2.100 HK$) have a look at
    eBay Hong Kong or elsewhere in Hong Kong.

    You sure a N2930 is going to nat a 1Gbit WAN?



  • You sure a N2930 is going to nat a 1Gbit WAN?

    Both, the Intel Celeron J1900 (04/2013) will do for 100% and the N2930 SOC will do it too, but it is newer
    (01/2014) also a dual core Celeron G3260T @3,2GHz will be able to realize the 1 GBit/s at the WAN & Snort
    but with more electric power usage.

    I only knows that the PPPoE is only running on a single CPU core and that might be dropping the
    throughput some, but if you are connecting to the Internet over a static public IP address it would
    be no problem.
