I like that it would fit nice in my rack, just need to add a 4x Intel card in it and away i go

 

found this comment in the feedback:

 

pFsense (FreeBSD) found both network cards and was able to utilize them at 1GBit, even though this is going to be a firewall box, connected to a cable internet connection, its always good to know the bottleneck will not be the network cards

Your link doesn't work for me; just took me to a generic Bing page. Typing in open frame steel rack gave me 5 results though.

 

If you don't mind my asking, what is a USB internal wireless N card? It seems like a contradiction in terms in that one usually thinks of USB as being for external devices.

As far as small customizable routers go has anyone tried the PC Engine Stuff?

 

I just got a PC Engine Alix 2d3

 

Its a super small x86 board, with everything on-board already, with the exception of wireless, but you can add that via the MINI-PCI slot, I installed a Atheros Mini PCI card that is b/g and it works great.

 

I am currently running DD-WRT Pro/Commercial on it, and plan on upgrading thw Wireless card to the Ubiquiti Networks SR71-12 (which I already bought, just waiting on the DD-WRT Drivers.

 

You can run a list of other this on it also, but I DD-WRT and it flat out flies this way.
