Wide Open Mind episode 9, Building a router with pfSense, contains a nicely done very basic overview of pfSense that offers a good introduction for the typical home user.
Not sure why he didn’t acknowledge the alert prior to recording. :) That’s the first time I’ve seen that message pop up on anything other than the Intel NICs in Nokia IP110/120/130 boxes. That feature generates a random MAC address from unassigned vendor space for NICs whose MAC address show to the OS as FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF. This is very rare, and occurs on atypical hardware that doesn’t store its MAC address in the “usual” location for whatever reason. The alert is basically a “hey, this is weird, but I fixed it” notification.
Nicely done video though.
