I am planning the layout of my future home network. On it, I want to use a small pc with clearos on it as a firewall/server/router.
However, I'm having trouble with the wireless part of my network. I assume that it would be best to attach a switch to the clearos server and attach a wireless access point to that switch (or buy a switch with an integrated wireless AP).
That way, my network would look like this:
Now I would like my wireless clients to be able to access my lan (the freenas box for example) and vice versa, and I would like to be able to accomodate multiple wireless clients. Maybe even have an extra guest lan that only allows www-access but not lan access.
So basically I'm looking for full wireless capabilities while using clearos as my router. My question is: is this possible (with clearos)? I've read a lot of documentation, but was unable to find a conclusive answer. There seem to be a lot of different opinions and workarounds, but no conclusive official documentation.
