    Great article, thanks a lot. It helped me get set up and even works with three interfaces (WAN, LAN, and OPT1 for my Wifi router).

    About the only thing I found missing, and I only mention it because this is a good step-by-step set of instructions to get you going, is to enable pfBlockerNG first, Save, and then go to the DNSBL tab and continue with the instructions. Yes, I did figure it out as it’s not all that hard but with step-by-step, it should be complete :)

    What a nice article !!!

    Excellent work.

    After reading your article I induced to use pfsense and results are far better than expected. I wish you very best for suggesting this. I would say that the solution is far better than commercial firewall.

    May I seek your help by way of an article on a) How to create report of bandwidth usage based on users. b) How to create firewall rules based on mac addresses ( I spent nights to find this , but in vain ) using pfsense….

    Keep writing such beautiful, informative and helpful articles. All the best
