[Cerowrt-devel] packet capture hardware

Cool.  I like this cheap little switch that can mirror ports.  Can one acquire it independent of the 3800?
And is there support in OpenWRT's driver set?

the switch in the 3800 is pretty sophisticated, it can mirror ports as well as 
doign VLANs (although I haven't looked into how to do this through openwrt)

consider sending the data out through a dedicated port on the switch, then let 
people use a throw-away server/laptop to do the traffic capture.
