I want to switch my "wireless router" that my ISP provided with a new one that can run VPN.
My question is: which is better?
1)Buying a gaming OR high-end router (which costs around 150$--200$)? Or setting my 7 years old laptop ( i7 4 cores 8gbs ram, only downside is, it has hdd not ssd) to run as a PfSense router?
2)Is the ssd necessary? what does it help with?
and one last question,3) If i decide to go with the Pfsense. Do i need to buy an expensive AP? or can a cheap one be fine? Is it just about the wireless range? or are there any other things that i need to consider when buying a new AP for the Pfsense setup?
