Why don't we have our own pfSense discussions Smile

I'm new to the pfSense party, but, I'm finding it much more reliable than any of the DLink/TPLink/ASUS routers I've had in the past...
and I've been using 24+ port switches in my hours for awhile because I like wired connections everywhere.

Main driving factor was a festival I partake in that an ASUS router crapped out on serving up IP addresses becuase who expected 1500 people to try to connect, when we dind't expect more than 300 people..

plus, it's fun to learn this crap once in awhile as my main job never involves network configs, so I forget all that.

I've been thinking about doing this. I used a Dlink Gamer router for years until it finally bit the dust.... I searched around and ended up going with a Cisco E4200 to replace it, and promptly put DD-WRT on it. It's been rock solid, I never have to reboot the thing.

However shortly after doing this, I ran across an article about using pfSense, and how it will basically perform the same as a direct connection as far as speed is concerned and it intrigued me. I'm looking to move at some point in the near future and will either build a house, or wire the one I move in to and I think I'm going to set up a pfSense box at that time. I already killed the wireless on the E4200 and have replaced it with Ubiquiti access points, which I like quite a bit.
