I would appreciate a second set of eyes to verify that I properly speced (overkill is OK) a box
capable of gigabit speed between interfaces. Also I'm concerned about Intel 82573V being support
We need a total of 6 interfaces with 1Gb between 3 of them, 2 interfaces will be 100Mb and the final
one could be anything. I know this computer has more CPU power than we need but scaling down the
processer to a single core P4 doesn't even change the price a $100.
In addition to basic firewall functions we will have captive portal on the 100Mb interface for
wireless access (via AP) and will have 3 site to site VPNs to other m0n0walls. This machine must be
CPU: Intel Pentium D 920 (2.8GHz, Dual Core, 2MB/Core L2 Cache, EM64T, 800 FSB)

NIC: Dual 10/100/1000 Mbps NICs (Intel 82573V) - Integrated
