For one of my tech projects during the COVID-19 world quarantine, I migrated to using PFSense as my Home & Home Lab Router. The purpose of this project was to seperate my Home Lab from my Home Network through V-LANs and to also have better Firewall control for my Internet facing services. This has worked out very well and I am happy with the network control and results of this project.
Homebrew Router Specs:
- Dell OptiPlex 390 (Mini Tower)
- 500 GB SSD
- 8GB RAM
- 1 Gigabit on-board LAN port
- Intel PCI-E 4 port Gigabit network card.
