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!

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

IIRC you want to aim for best per processor performance with pfSense, not maximum core count.

Too lazy to research, but maybe you'll get better results anon. I could be completely wrong. It would just be a shame to get 2 10gbit ports w/o being able to saturate them.

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.

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).
>>
>>52856101
Do a bit more research imo. I don't know how much of a pain in the ass it would be to forward routing interfaces over jails.

I tried making a jail use a VPN once and couldn't do it -- I think the only solution was to:
1) basically kiss security goodbye with the jail
2) or rebuild the kernel

Using the firewall in the bsd "jailvisor" would eliminate a few points of using a jail mind you.

Again, some things may have changed or maybe I'm too nooby. Don't take my word entirely for it without some googlin'.

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?

What's the power consumption like? Intel SoC as routers are cool but I feel that they generate too much heat and use too much power compared to just getting a router.

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.

There is literally nothing wrong with 32 bit on a device with 2GB ram tops.

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.

For the edgerouter, it's a vyatta fork. basically all the power is in the command line but they made a very good WebUI over it.

for the unifi wifi, I know theres also a command line but it's mainly managed by the WebUI. very well made also.

I've tried pfsense and tomato/ddwrt/etc but I really prefer the Ubiquiti stuff so far.

I've also deployed Ubiquiti stuff for contracts and it's been flawless so far.

Gee, wonder what country he's from.

>>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
>>
>>52854591
CCNA is EZ, what are you doing with your life?
>>
>>52857078
the router can be had for less than $100. And you're going to spend as much for any other wifi AP that can do > 1 mbps
>>
>>52858223
Interesting. I wonder how the load would fair on some midrange hardware with a standard dual port Intel nic. Thanks anon.
>>
>>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.

I was thinking about this one. If you just want the board it named nano-j1900.

Custom-built PFSense router
Two enterprise-class APs I got for free (Meraki and Aerohive)
>>
>>52855294
Yes, it can handle gigabit.
https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=87074.0

The J1900 is no joke when it comes to diy routers.
>>
>>52858837
Late-posted but see:
>>52861564

Intel NICs are the way to go, Unix has better support for them and they tend to perform better. Get a J1900 board with a pcie slot and install one.
>>
>>52861068
Check NIC brand compatibility.
>>
>>52856101
NAS4Free runs better in a jail.

That board will be heaps to run what you want. Just be sure to get enough RAM for your zfs and do get ECC.

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.

Yeah, and blows air like crazy. Sucks 500W on idle

>>52856033
>>52856112
Yeah, sure it is unnecessary, but it is also fuckton of fun, while emulators are not.

>>52856192
Bought it for 50$ shipped :")

>>52858354
Mostly hobby programming and electronics engineering.
>>
Over the years my parents have amassed a little collection of ISP issued routers, so our whole home network runs on those
>>
>>52854135

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 2621xm and 2950..
me 2501 is unused and just collecting dust.
2950 itself is really loud when it's turned on, i can't imagine yours
>>
>>52863153
Yeah, that's why I have two power strips, top one is for quiet hardware and bottom for mini vacuum cleaners.
Also, I've modded the gbit AT switch to be fanless, stays at 45C so it's great.

Netgate RCC-DFF 2220 on pfsense as router/firewall(pic related)

HP 1920-8G for managed switch

Ubiquiti UAP-PRO AC for wifi AP

I like it. A lot.
>>
>>52861068
If you are sticking with pfsense get a rcc-(dff|ve) from netgate/pfsense store.

I imagine nearly all of the chink shit off aliexpress is realtek, and you definitely want intel for pfsense/bsd.

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.

Here's a guy who literally does nothing with this equipment.

I bet a whole nickel that he bought it just to show it off to people who have no idea what any of it is.

It sits there on its pedestal, collecting dust and wasting power.

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.
>>
what does /g/ think about using a RasPi (or other single-board computer) with Pfsense for a SoHo router?
>>
>>52869160
For a pet project, just do it.

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.

>implying PTracer is not missing features that would be needed to cover all the curriculum of other CCNA exams, for example, the ASA simulator doesn't have PVLANS.

Do you even know what you're talking about?

where do i find this magical ptracer other then cisco jew courses?
