I feel the need for a new home dsl router coming on and I'm looking for make and model sugggestions and ideas.
Cheap is good but an old PC has a big electric bill and is otherwise uninteresting. I want an appliance. The box does NOT have to do WiFi.
I want a router that I can put some open-source software into that gives me unix-ish network tools. The only open source I know of is DD-WRT and that seems to be a WiFi system.
I've played with m0n0 and smoothwall and I would consider running either if a sub-$100 dollar box can be identified that they run on.
I know that out-of-the box Linux can do this but I'd like to identify a distro that gets me runnig quickly and lets some community look for security problems and upgrades and can help, if needed.
