Hello,

 

I have an old desktop PC (Celeron D, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB HDD) which I'd like to turn into a router/VPN service or something where I could learn all that and more.

 

Which OS/software do you recommend? I've read something about DD-WRT x86 and FreeBSD but am not sure if those are free and if they even support what I'm looking for.

 

Se yeah, I would like to set a home VPN service. And play with other stuff. The more feautures the better. So what would you recommend?

 

Thank you! :)

Both of those you mention are free. I think the DD-WRT would be your best bet. I would find as much information on installing and usage before you try it tho. Paying attention to the requirements.


Hope this helps thumbup.gif
