It's not really a headache. Most things are much easier to do than to look at
After reading all this, man, what a headache. I did study MS's basic networking back in 2000 at the local military/civilian collage for UMUC.
what topography is your favorite btw? I think bus topography is pretty common among most normal users
(sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.) I hope you get it figured out Fahim, best wishes!
Be nice >.>
Why would you need to 250 to make it the gateway for your network? What would you need to buy even - you already have 2 nics in it..
"After reading all this, man, what a headache." What?
Other than having to put up pictures for the OP.. This is literally like 5 minutes tops worth of setup.. I brought up the VM and created the little tutorial in that. If you were not worried about pictures and explaining it to someone take all of 2 minutes to setup.
"what topography is your favorite btw? - did you mean Topology? No "bus" is not common among normal users A "star" would be the common setup where their home router is the center (switch) and their computer/devices all connect to the switch.
And if you would of read all of it - you would of seen he has it working..

Very happy to report that today I went 'live' with pfSense being my main router for my network - after some time messing around with PPPoE settings, I finally got it to work!
I am currently using my old router as an Access Point but would like to replace this in the longer term with a proper Access Point.
It seems to be faster and is much more powerful than the router it replaces. I would encourage anyone who is considering it to go for it.
And thanks to BudMan for all his advice on the topic.

Would totally agree with you if my router wasn't such a piece of junk.
Even though it is now only an AP, I have had to reboot it twice already in 24 hours, because it has been misbehaving.
My reasoning for getting a 'business class' AP, is because of this and no other reason.

My apologies - only clicked the first link. That's the one I liked the look of too, although slightly more expensive than the Cisco model I was looking at.
For the sake of completeness, I drew my network in Visio so you can see what you helped implement.
