Have a sky fibre router, bought a linITX firewall, as well

Customer Question

Have a  fibre router (lan cable), A lLinITX ALIX 2D3 LX800 (3NIC+USB) pfSense Firewall Kit, as well as std Wifi Access point . Need to know how to connect and set up.


 


My thinking : disable wifi & dhcp on sky router > plug into pfsense firewall (LinITX), then plug into Wifi Access Point (reserve static ip for laptops) setup small POOL OF IP Addresses with dhcp running(mobiles etc).


 


Aim = use pfsense to monitor individual devices, create stable fibre access, VPN etc.
