I was wondering, for the purposes of a firewall (not a wireless router),
do people have any opinion as to the security/flexibility/"betterness"
of the m0n0wall versus a Linksys router running the Sveasoft firmware?
Both support useful features including firewall (shorewall for the
Linksys) and DNSmasq service. Those are pretty much what I need out of a
firewall. I already have a wireless access point for my home network,
but the Linksys is pretty attractive because it is only $40 right now
(and the upgraded firmware, another $20), whereas it looks like it'll
cost about $150+ to build a m0n0wall box from the WRAP board.
Any opinions would be welcome. I know most people will support the m0n0
box, but I am curious if anyone has done a comparison. My use is just to
firewall my home network.
