Suggestion for ARM box with 3-4+ PCI-based ethernets?
I'm looking for something to replace my existing dd-wrt router (or at
least to separate out my router functionality from my Wifi capability).
I'm looking for an arm box (I want the very low power use of an ARM),
but I want ethernet via PCI (or on-chip), not through the USB Bus like
on many ARM boxes, due to speed requirements. I'm looking for at least
3 10/100/1000 ethernet ports because I want to support multiple WANs,
some of which might exceed 100mbps.
So, suggestions? My understanding is that the RPi's ethernet is via
USB. Cubieboard is only 10/100. I haven't looked around at other ARM
I'd be willing to use non-ARM if it can get down to the 10-15W power
profile. I'd even be willing to swap over to a "real router" if I can
get the price point down, but last I checked a Cisco of sufficient speed
and ports would cost me several hundred dollars.
