Now while I agree with Jesse on a "saturated" T1 its is kinda touch and 
go, especially if you have alot of shaping going on, but I have several 
client T1's that I use the 4801's on and they are fine 99.9% of the 
time, no problems whatso ever. So no I dont think it would be a problem. 
I also use the 4801 on my home connection which is 5mbit Wifi and it 
purrs along just fine with no problems.

As for your wifi feed I think the soekris boards will be just fine, we 
use them in several 5-10mbit wifi feeds without problems, and I am sure 
alot of other people use them in the same way.

Now the Soekris did not work for our datacenter, but with the amount of 
traffic we push it is not surprising in the least.
