I have been using PFSense on a PC for about 4 years now for my home network, and it works perfect. I love all of its features and I really cannot complain.
Recently though I have been getting tired of maintaining the PC that it runs on, having to reinstall it every time a major part goes wrong such as motherboard or hard drive etc..
I'd like to know if any of you here can recommend a reasonably priced router box that could replace my PFSense running on this PC.
Here are the features that I currently use in PFSense that I would also like to use in the replacement:
- Traffic Shaping based on protocols and ports
- Port Forwarding
- Firewall rules
- DNS server (Preferably standalone, but forwarding is fine too)
- DHCP server
- Traffic monitoring
- OpenVPN or IPSec VPN server
