Shuttle XG41 with ClearOS
Good timing guys. I am deploying a ClearOS install this very weekend on a Shuttle XG41. It's got dual NIC's and only draws 65w max on power.
Should be a nice upgrade from the limitations of most home wi-fi routers. I have an ASUS RT-N56U and it still doesn't do all I want it to do.
I've loaded ClearOS on an older PC already so I know ClearOS does what I need it to do but that old PC had a 1000w power supply in it, so that was only the test as that power supply was total overkill.
Hoping this Shuttle XG41 gets me the best of both worlds at a tolerable power footprint and then I can put the ASUS somewhere in the middle of my house as just a WAP instead of in the wiring closet in the far corner of the house as a router.
