>>>I'm using a mini-itx 500 box, with a 64M CF card, 2 network cards and a
wireless 54M card. It's
my router, mrtg, and 54M wireless AP. All put together with a little
poking and the docs
on the nycwireless.org/pebble website (google for a proper url..).
It still has a 300W PSU, but if I could be bothered to get a 55W jobbie
I could use that (I don't know
if when the power isn't being pulled is it being used?).
The other thing that is interesting is the linksys WRT54G (£58 from
amazon). It runs linux, and there
are some hacked firmwares out there already.
