Thanks Andrew. I would very much like updates on how this goes for you.
My own experience - I made the change to pfSense and it went well. I built
a config using an identical machine (Lex Systems CV860, I have a few lying
around now) and a 1 GB CF card. Ran the live installer and all was good. I
built everything from scratch - I used one of my free public IPs and tested
everything (other than some of the inbound NAT stuff that is on a routed
subnet from my ISP). Everything worked well, all of my VLANs were great.
During a slow time on my network I took down the live m0n0wall, swapped in
the pfSense card and booted up. Everything ran great. After about 4 hours
it seemed like my VLANs started dropping. It wasn't like the m0n0wall
freeze. A few VLANs continued to operate with no issues. I was in no mood
to troubleshoot so I quickly dumped the m0n0 CF card back in and things came
back online. I'm not sure what happened but I didn't want to complain as I
didn't do any of my own troubleshooting and may have missed a config setting
