Some of the AlamedaWireless guys like
Mikrotik Routerboards (to put them on
top of a pole on top of a roof). This one
uses Debian as the reference Linux OS:
The lower end ones run OpenWRT well,
too, but you probably won't be running
Apache etc. on that kind of Linux distro.
Not as small as a gumstix etc. but
multiple integrated ethernet and miniPCI
(for wifi etc)
Please keep in touch.
This is unedited.
