    I'd be worried if it didn't have a high uptime on a regular basis

    Though I did just break the streak, installed a firmware update.

    Ron, FWIW, pfSense can run on super-minimal hardware. Mine is on a PIII 1Ghz, 512MB RAM, and using a 2GB CF card for the hard drive.

    I still have a hard time thinking of a p3 1ghz as being 'minimal'. To me, a Raspberry Pi is minimal.. these days

    one of my servers is a dual p3/1ghz machine.. still does a lot of work.

    Wow, that's crazy. I don't see that happening in my case, given the somewhat iffy power situation.

    I think I have an ideal candidate lurking... somewhere. Everything still in chaos after the move!

    Unless my UPS gets backed-up by an auto-switching generator of some kind, I don't think that will help.

    Ah, the joys of living in the country.

    a UPS is still a good idea.. for brown outs and short outages. I have all of my networking gear on a UPS, and my main computer on a UPS. If anything, it lets me shut things down smoothly.

    nope, haven't done that. I just have a couple of old Linksys WRT-54G's running DD-WRT, one AP, one repeater/bridge

    Oh, definitely. Even more so at the new place. Just saying that that there have been at least 3 multiple-hour outages in the 3 months we've been there, keeping anything up for 500+ hours would take more!

    Hours = days


    I think I'll pick up a cheap device that can act as a wireless bridge.. and then just connect that to a pfsense computer.

    yeah. I need to look around.. pretty sure I've seen a new wap that can act as a bridge or router for around $20

    edit: yeah.. think this is what I want: http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_det...id=3&pl2_id=18

    it has good reviews from people on the dd-wrt forums, for a cheap'ish device that comes with its own nice firmware
