I ran some captive portal monowall v. pfsense tests a few months back.

I came to the conclusion that pfsense has a few more problems than 
monowall. The most obvious of these was the lag in displaying the 
captive portal page. On monowall it was pretty much as you'd expect 
(maybe a couple of seconds) whereas on pfsense it could take between 10 
and 15 seconds. Never really got to the bottom of why this was occurring 
but it wasn't my setup as other people had encountered the same issue.

I've been running a monowall captive portal setup for about a month now 
(just upgraded to 1.3x) without a hitch.
