Frankly, I would through a bit more hardware at it. The Soekris may handle
it, but it will be tight... And it will not do wire speed between the
internal interfaces. I would go with;
Very small (appliance like) Case $62.99
Duel ethernet 1Ghz board $148.00
Very nice Intel Duel port NIC $34.00
Psudo Hard drive $18.90
And 512 meg of memory. 128-256 works fine now, but if you want PPTP or
captive portal with a lot of users, you may need 512.
