Re: ARCFlex FreeStation

Funny...the data sheet has plenty of antena/radio info, but no information on how much horsepower the unit has. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it's a 400MHz MIPS CPU, similar to M-series Ubnt stuff, but I could be very wrong.

Yes probably a 300 or 400mhz SoC from Atheros.

Edit. actually appears to be a 300mhz Ralink SoC

300 or 384? I've owned a couple WiFi routers (Engenius ESR9850, Encore EHNWI-2AN3) that had the 384MHz part on-board and they seemed to perform well enough. The Engenius part could actually hit 600+ Mbps in routing throughput, according to SmallNetBuilder. So if Arc has that CPU inside the ARCFlex it should be decent throughput-wise.

Appears to be at 384mhz actually.

Just an FYI gang, this is the Freestation 5 we are discussing, NOT the Freestation 2. I will get to those soon.

Superdog, did you ever get that FreeStation 2? I've been wrangling with a friend of mine who bought one over in Maryland, he is attempting to get OpenWRT installed & it is being a pain. The wiki makes it look so simple...
