Solved Home made Firewall box....

Intel / D945gnt

Specs: Windows 7, Core Duo 2,58 GHZ /2GB
At the moment I have a wired/wireless network using a Micro-Tic Routerboard. The combined bandwidth of 15Mbps comes from aggregation of 4 ADSL lines because a fiber line is not possible at the moment in the area.
From time to time I get unexplained problems from what I believe is hacker activity since I have a fixed IP.
So I'm thinking of a homemade Firewall box (since hardware firewall prices are a bit salty) using a 4-port Gigabit LAN card on a PC running pfSence which I could use later on with the fiber also.
What do you think about my idea / Do you know of any cheap hardware box (up to $300) ??

✔ Best Answer
I think you better look at the core problem of your "unexplained problem".
What does the problem exhibit? Any messages? Event log entries? Slow browsing? CPU high load? Any processes in high CPU load??
