>>52851101 richfags buying routers for more than 200 $. this is insane
WHY IS "NORMAL" HARDWARE (reliable hardware, as it should be, not the shit consumers (normies) get) SO FUCKING OVERPRICED. I HATE THE TECH INDUSTRY! WHY DO THEY SELL ROUTERS THAT BARELY WORK (200 MHz + some wannabe gigabit switch) TO CONSUMERS, ONLY BECAUSE (quoting person from big tech store) "This is not server grade equipment, but you'll need no more than that" -- NO FUCK YOU! I asked for gigabit Ethernet + reliable router that WILL WORK 24/7 (hell I even have an UPS!) and that can be configured for my needs! Apparently EVERYTHING you get in some place like "dat big tech store! -BUY-OUR-SHIT-" is absolute crap that will make you disappointed and angry, because it WILL fail!
I used this simple script. Keep in mind it generates a ~20 MB file which is huge for a router. I store it on a usb drive on my router. I then point to this file from the dnsmasq config so it loads to RAM after booting.
I haven't done auto update yet but that should be easy since openwrt supports crobjobs / scheduled tasks

Would this make a good PFSense router and FreeNAS in one system? http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/D/X10SDV-TLN4F.cfm >eight cores, 16 threads >2 Gigabit ethernet ports >2 10Gigabit ethernet ports >6 SATA ports for NAS >M.2 drive for off-site caching when rendering
>>52855633 I won't just be running pfSense on it, I'll also be running FreeNAS, if possible. But I have no idea how to make all of FreeNAS's feature work in a virtualized environment. What I wanted to do is run FreeBSD as the base operating system, with FreeNAS on one VM and pfSense in another.
If not, I could just run them both without virtualizing them, but I want to know if there is a way to isolate FreeNAS in a DMZ while running on the same machine as pfSense.
>>52855739 >run them both without virtualizing them, but I want to know if there is a way to isolate FreeNAS in a DMZ while running on the same machine as pfSense. Jail without(bhyve with) visualization but who you need literally two freebsd with webui instead just 2 freebsd or single one?
Currently just a dual-Xeon FreeNAS server, but converting it to a type 1 hypervisor (ESXi?) running a firewall (OpnSense?) + FreeNAS this week, unless /g/ has better recommendations. Needing a Windows machine for the ESXi client isn't an issue for me.

Do you like pain? > (ESXi?) >FreeNAS Wat?! >running a firewall (OpnSense?) + FreeNAS this week, unless /g/ has better recommendations. FreeBSD with enabled PF + ZFS all what you need and of course if you really want visualization: Jail(chroot) or hypervisor XEN/BHyve/Docker(Jail).
>>52856191 >How long did you study for your CCNP? 5-6 months (4-6 hours a day)
> What do you do? I am currently a network engineer for government services aka I get questions from local high network engineers that work in gov services and need to implement/rebuild their nw architecture.
Example: The sys admin of a university called me today for asking adv for their security plan. I then went there since I got a cool ass car and love to drive it even tho I only had to say things that werent even 5 mins long. Helped the fucker, checked out their uni, had free lunch and by the time I was back my day already ended.
I do however use all this free time now to study for my CCIE that I want to get in 2017.
>Was CCNA hard? Hmm I would say kinda. I already saw the submodules of ccna in college (bach comp science) but I did a good 3 month of studying since i didnt want to fail cuz of the high cost of taking an exam. I did succeed with 940 tho.
>What can you advice noobs who are going for CCNA? Study hard, and by hard, i mean real hard. Do not skip chapters, dont b lazy. I'd say 3 months is needed if you have bachelors degree in comp science. Or else 6-9 months if u start from the bottom.
>>52856547 I would buy all the module books + cisco ccna 200-120 book at ciscopress. Do know however that the MINIMUM score u need to get is 825/1000 (was in 2010). You really need to study this shit.
>why not anon-questions Because there are a lot of sneaky shits here who would love to know the true guidance for anon internet access but at the same time, these empty heads don't even know what you can find in tcp/eth/ip packets. They just connect to a vpn and think they go insta hackboy 3000 anon mode while in fact, a vpn is useless for anon netting
>>52855925 So I did a ESXi Hypervisor with a IPFIRE VM for my routing. Worked great, however--I just got gigabit internet (ATT 1000/1000) and the VM router would only do 650Mbits of throughput. I had to go baremetal to get gigabit routing.
>>52856620 D-Link hardware isn't perfect itself better look at some cheap ARM boards or even better x86(use powerd and cpufreq), current RISC isn't best in performance/watt last hope for OpenPower and SPARC.
>>52856726 Interesting, what kind of hardware were you running it on? I'm not getting gigabit speeds anytime soon though, too busy getting cucked by TWC at 300/20, and only within the last year or two.
>>52856726 >Don't think you can get a ARM board with multiple ethernet ports and FreeBSD support without spending a pretty penny Buy 4-5 boards build cluster, use as router but easy just buy ordinary x86 PC or embedded x86 router.
>>52852854 if anyone was wondering what the hardware looked like >gigabyte celeron j1900 soc board >2gb of some random sodimm >cheap 350w micro atx psu >random 500gb hdd I had laying around >ark 1.5u rackmount case >startech pci riser card incase I need it
>>52857626 I get gigabit throughput just fine in IPFIRE on this I3. My issue was purely a virtualization issue due to ESXi. Most routers won't route gigabit. Check this out: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/tools/charts/router/view -- you really need to build something or pay some money to route gigabit. Shitty consumer routers can't do it.
>>52857735 >generate too much heat and use too much power compared to just getting a router Where do people live that the power consumption of a small x86 board amounts to anything non-negligible on a power bill? Heat doesn't seem to be an issue with mine even though it's fanless.
>>52857767 I like that celeron solution, I've been looking at replacing my I3 setup with that. People are stupid to bitch about that using 30Watts. I make 145k a year, I have a fucking lab at home with 3 ESXi servers, and 4 desktops. All top tier shit all on 24x7. My electric bill is 100-180 a month and I have central air. Fuck the police.
>>52857778 There is literally nothing wrong with 32 bit on a device with 2GB ram tops. Also you're still not going to get a device, dual wifi interfaces, SFP, good OS support, mSATA, and hardware crypto accel with case and PSU included for less than $200 (it was $180 plus $20 shipping from EU to burgerland).
>>52857794 Atom, actually. But it still routes at gigabit speeds fine, you only need more CPU power if you're doing some tunneling or using it for non-router things.
>>52857767 Power isn't, but heat is. It's a very sensitive issue to me because I live in the South and it can get very hot. I don't want something that runs 24/7 to fry itself whenever summer rolls around.
I don't get it Don't ameritards get a router from their ISPs? I've never had any problems with them, WLAN or LAN, slowdowns etc etc what are you achieving with getting one for 200$? I'd rather just use the free one from my ISP
>>52857913 yeah apparently but how are they shit? I always had multiple devices connected, WLAN and LAN at the same time, from the time I had ISDN to DSL 50k+, they were always enough and had the newest WPA protocols never had problems one broke and it got replaced in two days but how are they shit? Are you running server farms on them? How can they not be enough? >>52857931 well that I get you are a tinfoil fedora wearing faggot case closed
>>52857735 it's on a rack with it, 2 wifi ap's and a 24 port managed switch, total power draw is around 100w >>52857354 >>52855294 it can handle a full 140mbit/s of torrenting, and I've done quite a lot of lan transfers maxing out at around 100-120mbyte/s I wouldn't say it could handle 100+ users on a 1gbit downlink, but in that case you would be spending more than $200 on a router, mostly due to the NIC's, which I think are realtek and not intel
>>52857958 Some people want more than basic routing done on their network. Being able to set up a VPN, plug in a drive for NAS use, and even doing things like ad blocking on the router are something no ISP provided router is going to be capable of.
Currently: A WRT54GL running one of the tomato firmwares. It's standing in for my ESXi hypervisor which I stupidly decided to investigate Linux KVM with. IOMMU is shit to deal with in KVM compared to ESXi.
Normally it runs pfsense. Hail to the pfsense gods, you beautiful bastards.
compulab has plenty of tiny, low-power systems, many of which have 2 or more ethernet ports. they're not exactly cheap, but they all have intel NICs which is good for both compatibility and performance.
I have an Asus AC68U running an older version of Merlin. I was tempted to slap together a pfsense machine, but couldn't find an actual reason to do it.
This thing does 1Gbps NAT on its own and is rock solid. I restarted it after 6 months of uninterrupted uptime only because I was fucking with other FW versions. Probably cheaper and uses less power than a custom build too.
Bought pic related today for 120 euros, since it was on sale and I needed a better router. Very impressed with the wireless performance, I desperately needed better wifi since the router/modem my isp provided had shit wifi, and this house isn't wired with ethernet amd it would be a lot of effort to wire every room. My cable is only 50/5 though, but the shitty isp provided routers wifi couldn't even transfer 50 down.
So, in like a month or so, I'm getting a gigabit fiber line. I'm considering picking up a(n) Ubiquiti Network EdgeRouter PoE and a UniFi AP AC Lite. I'll have three machines wired, and all the other consumer stuff off of the WiFi.
But right now, got an old NetGear WNDR3700v2 with DDWRT running. S'alright for my current garbage internet through AT&T.
For an actual appliance you want to work, seriously consider the cost-benefit. Many homebrew copy-paste cheap hardware shitboxes have a legitimately good consumer grade counterpart that costs a fair price without all the fuck hassle.
