    Clarification: Is Motherboard WiFi mPCIe?

    I'm planning out a pfSense router and I am aware that pfSense is picky about WiFi hardware and best supports Atheros chipsets. If I buy a motherboard whose built-in WiFi is Realtek or some other not-so-well-supported/unsupported brand, can I remove the WiFi module and swap in a different one...

    (This is a re-upload cause I'm dumb posted my original in the gallery) So I'm still a bit new to the pfSense scene and have been having trouble getting UPnP to work properly on my home network.

    Home Network Security Cocktail

    What's your flavor? Here's mine: FortiGate 60E NGFW (if you're in the industry you can get these free from Fortinet at various events/etc. - watch for them and sign up - the common combo is an 8 port managed switch, this, and an AP) - pfSense is great if you're a roll your own guy/open source...

    Cincinnati Bell Fioptics is getting installed next week, and I'm going to get their 1000 Mbps by 250 Mbps connection using fiber to the home. This will be a major improvement to my 8/3 WISP PPPOE connection that I'm getting fed up with because my internet is controlled by my county's fiscal...

    Questions for PFSense users

    I have been playing with pfsense on a MSI u100 netbook and a usb ethernet adapter for some time to feed my network. Recently I picked up a Zotac Zbox CI323 Nano to be used as my Pfsense box.
