I am considering getting a firewalla Gold Firewall and thought I would post to this group to get feedback before I order it and share my device configuration to see if anyone has concerns before I order
Here is the list of products I have / Use
Xfinity XFi 1 gigabit model acting as a router with DHCP
Orbi RBR850 Mesh wi-fi and Satellite in Bridge mode
Lorex 8 channel Seurity Camera
HomeBridge with the following plug ins
- Camera Ffmpeg Bridge
- LG Thinq Bridge
- Midea Air Bridge
- Omnilink Platform Bridge
- Ring Bridge
- Wemo Bridge
- MyQ Bridge
NordVPN on Multiple devices
To ease installation, I would insert the router behind my Xfinity Router and keep my Xfinity as the router. I am doing this as I have many IOT devices, and I really don’t want to reconfigure all the devices with new IP address on the network. The firewall device would be in Bridge mode just like my Obi’s are. I want to use my NordVPN client to set up a vpn client on the firewalla.
HomeKit is my primary tool to access my lights and monitor windows and doors. Do you have any concerns about this setup with Firewalla?
