Hi all, I am looking for a firewall with intrusion detection (of the snort type) and many configurable security options. It's going to be a kind of test for a newbie like me, I'm going to use it apart from protecting my home network a little bit more also as a learning mode. I leave you the site where I can buy second hand. I would appreciate if you could help me to find the best network protection solution based on my budget for this experiment which is 7500 Argentinean pesos.
Thank you all very much in advance.
Best regards.



Edit:
I had seen this device but I don't know if the intrusion detection and prevention system will be functional and good.
Router Cisco Serie 881-k9 (con Licencia K9 Y Fuente) - $ 2.800 item&tracking_id=175416c8-ad43-4abb-ba41-8b95c85e0e85

Is there a product end-of-life cut-off you have in mind? ...a Cisco Pix 501 is well over 10 years old.
Will you use Snort3 with hyperscan? ...regex in snort2 is not efficient.
Virtualised pfSense/OPNSense? ...if not, do you already have that hardware?

No, I don't have anything, it's a learning project that was frustrated.
if you find a better alternative here is the site:Firewall | MercadoLibre 📦

Thank you very much.
