This box is far from an all-but-firewall box. Can you authenticate to
it? Does it provide an ntp server? Does it act as a web cache? Does
it have a RADIUS Server for PPTP and WPA authentication? Does it, does
it, does it?
Aside from it being, basically, purely a NAS box with no other
functionality, it is also a Linksys product - and any of us who have
used anything from Linksys in the past knows that their gear isn't up to
home-user standards, let alone business use standards.
