Small home network

A bit messy as its been a few years since I originally wired this up.

Pic includes a:

•NeoWare thin client running pfsense.
•Linksys WRT54Gv2 as a wireless AP.
•Small UPS to keep the core network up during brief power outages.
•Base station to a Gigaset A580IP VoIP phone system.
•8-port 1Gb dumb switch connecting all the main rooms of the house
•Cable Modem

What kind of power usage do you get on the NeoWare running pfSense?

Huh - I actually ran across that article a few months ago when I was thinking about using a thin client for pfSense.

I'm running an old Digital PC 3100 (AMD K6-233, 256MB RAM) at the local university as a Gentoo-powered router. I can easily do ~60mbps (yes, I tested this myself).

The problem is I was using a pair of 3c905's (yes, the original 3c905), so my CPU was getting it's butt kicked. I'm going to try a pair of Intel Pro/100+ cards and see if my SI can drop quite a bit.. hopefully.
