PfSense setup (will this work?)

  • Hi,

    I want to setup a pfSense machine to replace my Linksys WRT54G router. What I am looking at is doing the following:

    The pfSens machine is the following:
    Motherboard: Supermicro Super S2DG2
    Memory: 2x 512MB PC100 SDRAM Registered ECC
    Processors: 2x Intel Pentium II Xeon 450 MHz with 2MB cache
    Video: 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 16MB AGP
    Wired Network Interface: 2x Phobos P430TX (4x 10/100) [Intel based chipset)
    Wireless Network Interface: 1x Netgear WG311T 802.11g
    Optical Media: SCSI-2 (Ultra) Pioneer DR-U165 CD-ROM
    Hard Disk Drive: SCSI-3 (Ultra 2 Wide) Quantum Atlas IV 18 WLS

    I have loaded up pfSense 1.2-Release on the box and it seems to report no errors (have not installed to HDD yet).  I am just using the one WAN and can not seem to find much for a "How To" or similar to see if this is possible.  Seems most people are setting up multi-WAN, so any feedback would be great thanks.


  • should be fine. multi-wan is just more difficult so that is why you see so many posts.  single wan will be quite easy.

    you will probably want traffic shaping so that games do not interfere with voip, but that will be difficult whatever firewall you use.

  • Thanks for the reply sai, will there be anything special I will have to do for setup on the pfsense box?
