I have an old Dell running PFSense connected to my cable modem with a
Netgear wireless G router on the other side. I found it works
seamlessly as long as I turn the netgear to access point only (disable
NAT, DHCP, and built-in firewall) and run all the services on the PF
PFSense is BSD based and very easy to configure. Only need 2 network
cards (Red for modem, Green for internal) unless you want a server on
a DMZ. Contact me off-list if you want some specifics on everything or
want to check out the setup.
