I use PFsense 1.2.3 in my office environment with 4 nics, 2 100 mbit
and 2 gigabit.  I have different network segments and all are sharing
the same internet connection.  It works great and has been online
since we moved into this new office a month ago.  I also use it as a
VPN end point for when I need to troubleshoot our network and I am out
and about.  It is great and can also do other office type
filtering/monitoring.  It has Squid plugins, IMSPector plugins and it
also can do tcpdumps (very useful IMHO)
