      Nice, used to run it on a little alix 2D3.

      Infact I think one of them has a 4gb microdrive (left over from a solid state conversion on an ipod mini) with pfSense installed on it In it.

      Im liking it alot.
      I was running smoothwall before but was no good for this :/ was running the smoothwall box since 2003/4

      Connection has had no slowdown at all with pf Most definitely a difference.

      Using Mikrotik routerOS at the moment but looking to get my hands on a Ubiquiti Edgerouter lite to play with if they ever manage to actually get some into Europe.

      Once you start using things like pfSense/RouterOS.etc it becomes very hard to go back to any SoHO router even if it is DD-WRT/Tomato.
