This IS good news, and not a moment too soon.
Any benchmarks on what type of bandwidth/throughput this thing will be
capable of? The current WRAPS have a 233 MHz AMD Geode SC1100 CPU
w/128MB SDRAM and this new replacement has a 433 or 500 MHz AMD Geode LX
processor w/128 OR 256MB SDRAM
I ask because some of my m0n0-on-WRAP clients are moving up from DSL or
T1 feeds to 5Mbps, 10Mbps, or faster optical Internet links and I would
love to keep the firewall in the small form-factor that it currently is
instead of needing to replace it with a full-size PC or mini-ATX
(Can you see I am partial to the tiny, nondescript WRAPS in black cases?)
P.S. If WRAP stands for "Wireless Router Application Platform", I wonder
what ALIX stands for... "Another Little Internet Xtender"?
