Richard, One thing to take a look at would be Security Onion. I use this in concert with my other security gear as a means by which to analyze all traffic coming in\out of my network. That analysis drives several follow-on activities such as Snort tuning, forensics, etc.
Re: wifi, check out Mikrotik. I did an eval about 6 months ago that included MT, Ubiquity, Dlink, Linksys, etc. - about 5 vends in all. I do agree the Ubiquity line is solid but it is a bit costly when compared to some other options such as MT. The latter is far and away the best value especially when considering their wireless performance. I need to also state there is a bit of a learning curve there but once you dig in and get the hang of it, it’s not an issue at all. MT devices also have have a very comprehensive feature set. Let me know if you have any other questions re: this stuff... _______________________________________________ pfSense mailing list https://lists.pfsense.org/mailman/listinfo/list Support the project with Gold! https://pfsense.org/gold
