Celeron. If only one had Intel NICs. I think you can have 16GB with Celerons?Interesting solutions, but for a $200USD router, I dont think I'll find anything
Patrick: I've already looked at the Atom S1260... Although it looks like a very interesting embedded platform, its overpriced! I couldnt find anything for less than $450!
The new Atom "Avoton" and "Rangeley" CPU's are also all 400$+..
Unless I opt for a Celeron based platform with support for 8GB RAM (Do I really need ECC for pfsense???) and two NIC's with a PCIE slot, all is left are expensive comemrcial solutions such as the Supermicro or S1260 based platforms designed to be miniature servers...
I will keep searching for a decent solution. Ideally, if I could find an embedded platform with the required features for less than $100, I'd be very happy, even if that means going down the second hand road..
Absolutely! a 1Gbps WAN is not gonna happen soon, especially here in Canada... Unless you pay $6,500 a monthHey - you do know that unless you have like a 1 gigabit WAN connection, an Atom D510 or D525 is going to work fiine right?
I hate to say it, but I cannot remember 8 years ago overly clearly in what we tested on this board. I think we did, but I apologize. 8 years ago almost seems like a lifetime at this point.
Its ok! I knew it was a long shot. I'll get some larger DIMMs and try them out and report back. Its been a great little pfsense box so far.I hate to say it, but I cannot remember 8 years ago overly clearly in what we tested on this board.
