Buying this from Netgate was a serious mistake.
I had configured my old firewall 100% on my own and it ran well for over a decade. When I made updates, there was no problem. When I got tied up with deaths in the family, moving, building a new house, and so on, for a number of years, that old pfSense firewall just kept chugging along, working perfectly.
I felt, after that long, it was time to update, but I didn't want to mess with putting an image on an SD card and dealing with a serial cable. I don't have the time I did in the past, so I ordered a simple box, running the same software, that was backwards compatible. Supposedly I could load the configuration from my old firewall directly into the new one and that would be it.
Well, no. I had issues with DNS from the start, but it didn't look like firewall issues. It looked more like flakey ISP issues. I had to go to the forums and, after FOUR days exchanging messages and spending hours each day, I finally got the new configuration tweaked so we didn't keep losing connectivity repeatedly. During this time, I wrote a letter to Netgate - to Sales, since they promise "zero to ping" tech support, but they don't have that contact email anywhere on the website. Hell, unless you pay for tech support, you have only the forum. A month later? Not one single reply on that email. (I was hoping Sales would at least say, "We gotta make sure this guy doesn't complain to others and badmouth us," and send me to tech support, but they ignored it.)
So now, while the whole country is on lockdown, I'm finding it takes 1/3 of a second for a ping to this device on a network that was working perfectly until I replaced the old pfSense firewall with the Netgate one running a new version of pfSense.
I don't know what's wrong with this system, but it keeps malfunctioning and creating issues that slow down connections when an old version of the same software, on old hardware, worked perfectly.
And help? No. They don't give it. Not even zero to ping. They don't care.
Time to go back to the old hardware. It worked. I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and go through the old fashioned upgrade process because I sure as hell can't count on Netgate's equipment to work properly.
1. I should not have to restore firmware out of the box
2. 20% restocking fee is outrageous
3. device is slow.
The pfSense software is luxurious when compared to OpenWRT. But, along with all the extra capabilities comes increased complexity.
When used with ad blocking software pfBlockerNG, there is enough RAM to work fine with relatively default parameters, but if you turn on additional block lists or the TLD option, you will quickly run out of RAM. I would like to see a 2GB version of the SG-1100.

But if you're upgrading from another PFsense box, headaches are ahead for you. All three ports are part of a network switch instead of individual NICs.
Downloading a config from an old box (An SG-1000 in my case) and uploading to the SG1100 along with remapping the interfaces will not work. On reboot, you will need to console connect and re-set things up so that you have VLANs with your WAN and LAN ports on separate ones. Even then, after a day of trying to upgrade a Netgate SG-1000, I wasn't able to get anywhere since the VLAN port doesn't show up as an option and the auto detection of the WAN port doesn't work. I had to walk away.
I'd been using PFsense since around 2004 before version 1.0. I've used desktop PCs and rackmount servers, Soekris, PC Engines and other Netgate products (SG1000, 3100 and 5100). I had been a PFsense Gold susbscriber until Netgate ended that and was looking to continue supporting them. I'm frustrated and disappointed.
There is a 20% restock fee if you want to return it.
If you're looking to buy this, consider Qotom or PCEngines if you want small and low power.
Yes it doesn't handle more than 500 mbit, but most won't need faster than that
VPN setup is easy, secure private DNS for all your connected devices, total control over your home network
Limited Memory (1GB)
1st unit, kept randomly rebooting, had to send it to the manufacturer (RMA). They tested and found defective hardware. They did sent back a 'new' unit pretty quickly, however I did need to do a reimage of the new device once I got it as it was acting up right out of the box throwing all kinds of software errors. After flashing the new firmware (2.4.5) the netgate firewall is running like a dream and hasn't crashed yet, and I'm actually a happy customer and would recommend to those thinking of buying one, get the next model up if you can afford to.
