[Equipment] DLink DIR-657 HD Media Router

Does anyone here use this DLink DIR-657 Wireless N HD Media Router as a main and/or 2-nd router to serve any VoIP devices? If so, what is its performance in handling VoIP traffics?

Here is some limited information I gathered through a Google search on this device. It is based on a (non-MMU?) Ubicom IP7160U CPU with 128/16 MB RAM/FLASH capacity + a USB2 port as shown here. AFAICT, a 128MB RAM is more than adequate to run a decent PBX system; however, I can't tell about its performance with an IP7160 CPU if it is a non-MMU. Also, it is quite possible to fit a customized Asterisk / FreeSWITCH / YATE into a 16MB FLASH, too. It can be had for $14.99 + $4.99 S/H to US destination from 1SaleADay (today ONLY - 12/24/2012). At any rate, it appears DLink has GPLed its source code that can be downloaded from here. I thought this may be an interesting and inexpensive device to hack and turn it into a router PBX.
don't and stop are the ONLY two 4-letter words considered offensive to men, but not when used together.
