What is the price of it? Its hard to find on the site. I would like to
see it a little smaller, though that's not a big deal for indoor
installations. One good thing about the Soekris is that you can do
POE, it doesn't look possible for this unit. I think the 533MHz would
make up for the encryption accelerator, but I don't really need the
encryption anyway. On the other hand I do like the fact that you can
easily add a hard disk into it later on if you want to add a proxy
cache or a RADIUS server onboard.
