I'm currently running the following as the Gateway/DNS/DHCP for the mid
level startup (40 people) I work for.
I added 4gigs of ram and the cheapest SSD I could find.
It does inbound/outbound shaping on our 100/15Mbit link and when I slam
the link with netperf-wrapper top tells me the cpu is about 30% used.
I don't have any log files but when I tested this box in-line on a GigE
network I seem to remember it being able to do far above 100Mbit but I
don't remember how much more.
It's running a custom build of BB. Custom because the dual GigE network
chipset is not recognised by by openwrt BB and I had make a small patch
to fix that but every thing else is stock BB. QOS is qos-scripts
scripts and not a version of sqm-scripts. When I got it all going I
didn't full recognize that all the sqm stuff was not in qos-scripts. It
works and currently meets our needs so I've not felt much need to mess
It has a PCI-E x1 slot so you could add a wireless adapter.
Sadly its out of stock now but there are probably plenty more options if
we started looking for them.
