My Firewall @ Pi

There is something about firewalls and routers that has always managed to excite me. From being a rudimentary system comprising a lone BT router, emitting wifi for the family years back, my home network has grown into a complex system of switches, ethernet cables, modems, VLANs, and sunbets that quite often, and honestly, overwhelms its creator too !!
