[Cerowrt-devel] WNDR alternative for higher capacity

I should probably mention that at the tippity top of my list is:


That (with a second ethernet port and pcie slot) has enormous
potential, to move packet processing into either hardware (fat FPGA),
or the totally open co-processor, and offers the potential to get some
software defined radio stuff done.

That plan unfortunately doesn't meet a few short-term goals... is
unfunded... and will take a long time to produce results.

Middle term is to get our stuff pushed up to mainline and let the
market figure out what to put it on.

I'd like to find a decent based box for some future work. I hate
seeing a base price of 400 bucks or so on a x86 based one, though I
guess to get over 10x the network performance, 4x the base cost is not
too much to bear.
