first to join in 2010, wwwoooooooo

My pfsense box is running:
Asus A8V Deluxe 939 skt mobo (gbit lan onboard)
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ @ 2.0gHz (just to say "i have an overclocked router")
1 gB Samsung DDR RAM (2x 512mB)
2x Intel PRO/1000 GT NIC's
ghetto rigged 9550 for display
2gB Kingston DataTraveller

One of the Intel NIC's is a WAN, the other is LAN which goes to my old router and hopefully a switch soon. The onboard LAN (LAN2) goes to my server which runs a lot of things. LAN2 is bridged to LAN and there is a firewall allowing members on LAN2 to connect to LAN to obtain a DHCP address.

So far i am very pleased with the capabilities of pfsense. It seems to be able to handle loads and giving things addresses a lot more efficiently then my old router, seems that the slowdown from everyone (10-13 computers in my house, I've lost track...) connecting to the internet is also pleasantly gone.

I hope to continue to use pfsense for as long as i can, probably the best thing i could do for my network

PC: Dell Dimension 2400, 2.4ghz celeron, 512MB DDR, 40GB HDD, Integrated NIC and D-Link Gigabit

Usage: Router, QoS, VPN between offices, and OpenVPN for remote users. Supports around 50 stations + 1 offsite locations.

Using ntop and traffic things are always fun. Interesting to see who is looking at what. We're pretty open about which websites our users are visiting but it is always cool to see who is ****ing everyone over by trying to download music or watching youtube in HD!

If you are not familiar with cisco.
You don't want to buy cisco hardware.
You have an extra pc laying around.

You can get enterprise level hardware to run pfsense too. (premade low wattage boxes, multiple nics, etc...)

Specs:
VirtualBox VM, 1 CPU, 512MB RAM, 2GB Storage, 1 NIC bridged to physical. Running pfSense 2.01.

Usage:
Needed a DNS that would resolve hosts on my LAN, and my D-Link won't pass a LAN host as a DNS when replying to DHCP clients, so needed a separate system that would do both.

Hosts:
1 smartphone, 1 tablet, 2 laptops, 2 PCs, 1 server.

Love it. Runs in a tiny amount of memory, is accessible via a browser and seems much more responsive than Untangle (at least in a VM).

I run pfsense on a Alix 2d3 embedded machine (5 watts, 500 Mhz, 256 MB ram, 2GB CF card). I ran version 1.2 and 1.3 for years and recently upgraded to 2.1 which is now causing some wireless issues. As a result I'm now planning on replacing pfsense with an OpenBSD install, and roll my own firewall.
