Great article

That's a great article. I would also recommend ClearOS to anyone researching this sort of thing. I've been using it for a long time now and it has a lot of useful features.

Plus one to clear OS. Great for home DIY and small business users.

The ClearOS development team has put together some very clever solutions for packet handling within Linux. I actually followed a lot of their ideas when I scripted together my personal solutions for things like multiwan handling.

I think it rocks. I find new things I can do with it all the time, and the moderators and developers on their forums are very active and helpful. I've had much better performance since I switched, but I do have to say that I spend a little more time maintaining my COS UTM - in particular the intrusion prevention (aka snort) turns off sometimes when my cable modem flaps - but it's easy enough to turn it back on.

Soekris Engineering

Soekris engineering has been doing this for a very long time. You can add wireless modules to them if you want. Mine takes 5 watts.

Website still is crappy after all these years...

Soekris.com

Since they use x86 procs normal distros and router software mentioned works.

Go check it out.
