Interesting - can we have a link for the microwave modems?

Oh wow, you just flung me right back to primary school just then. Early 1990's, single IBM PC in the library running Windows for Workgroups 3.11, connected to the internet via a 28.8k modem. Those were the days.

Just spitballing here but maybe you could look into running pfSense under WSL on a Win10 box at each end?


pfSense runs on FreeBSD, not Linux. WSL also doesnt really provide 'real' NIC's to the linux guest. You would be better off with a real VM or physical machines.

IO on the RF modem is serial port with a buffer and full handshaking.

What you mean by "really fast"? Any specs of serial port? Some think that 128kbps is fast, others say that 155.52 Mbit/s (STM-1, also serial) is not enough fast.

Anyway I would use two routers. In case you have 2Mbit serial interface on that microwave thing, you could be fine with two Cisco 1700 routers equipped with WIC-1T cards. Just checked that you can get such (router+card) for 60..70$ on fleaBay.
