Two Ethernet ports is useful for running an open source firewall. But, at this point I am starting to look at 10 GbE. WiFi 6 supports up to 10 Gb and the routers for it are starting to come with 2.5, 5, or 10 GbE ports. So, if I was going to invest in a firewall only device I would like it to be faster than 1 GbE. There is also the CPU side of it; how much processing power is needed to drive a 10 GbE firewall? Would this class of device be able to keep up? Can it keep up with even 1 GbE?
