I’ve been looking at a few router / firewall devices, including Cisco, and it looks like there is a better option of using a PC Engines board runnning Debian. There are units available that ship with monowall installed, and honestly that might be a better option, I’ve heard that BSD have a very reliable TCP stack. Actually Monowall looks pretty impressive anyway.

I think this is the item I’m going to get:

Conclusion, The PC Engines WRAP with m0n0wall installed is a good choice for me because of the following reasons:
- BSD - open source
- PHP and XML based configuration files
- Inexpensive and very low power consumption
Therefore, I’m going to buy a Netgate m1n1wall!
