How to put pfSense on an ISP router?



  • HI,

    I'm planning on making a computer/network lab and can only uses an unused ISP router.
    It has a USB port but not a console output, does this make it impossible?
    I have tried to SSH into it but it is always denied.
    The problem is that I can't find a way of getting into the BIOS to change to the boot drive.
    This there any way?

    Thanks,
    MCRAFTAX

    You cant install PFsense on normal router, U need a dedicated PC /VM setup )    , but u can try DDWRT Firmware for ur router if it support it  (DD-WRT is free Linux-based firmware for several wireless routers)
