I think the board represents a high degree of difficulty for a
Its one thing to have a solution that is slightly too expensive
(versus 'wishes'), its quite another
to have no solution because its taking a long time to get FreeBSD
running. (a pre-requisite for
m0n0wall running, I might add.)
I think the board is somewhat under-powered for FreeBSD. The 175MHz
clockspeed might be OK,
but the CPU can't address more than 4MB of flash without jumping
through hoops (implementing segmentation).
I think you're perhaps unprepared for the realities of what it would
take to put together a 10,000 unit order in order
to drive the pricing you've been quoted.
