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.
