clients, 24 hours, 7 days a week.  The other network will have to handle 1000 clients, 7 days a
week, 9am-10pm.  We're looking at either ordering 2 WRAP boards, or two of the Nexcom 1045's.  The
1045 seems to be the best alternative because of its P4 Processor and 512 megs RAM.  Will two 1045's
be able to handle the load I described above (with m0n0wall)?

Depends.  How much bandwidth we talking about?  Any VPN's, and if so,
how many, and what expected throughput?
