Well, one of the things I showed was the Linksys NSLU2, and both the
D-link and Freecom boxes come with miniPCI-based radios
that will work (out of the box) with FreeBSD 6.2.
But you're the one that proposed using VIA boards and second-source
ethernet cards and wanted to make the centerpiece of the discussion

This is a m0n0wall list. In fact, now that you've cut-down the
recipients, its the m0n0wall developers list.
I presume that the members of the list want to discuss the
development of m0n0wall, and do NOT wish the discussion to devolve
into a "general solutions for service providers list".
Given this, anything I mention here will include the angle that it
will (or could) run m0n0wall (or perhaps pfSense or FreeNAS) or why
it can't (and thus isn't a subject for the list.)
