Multiple Ethernet StarOS Router
#1
Does anyone have suggestions for hardware with multiple Ethernet ports which can run StarOS?  I'm thinking an 8-16 port router machine - something along the lines of hardware like a Mikrotik 2011 or 3011, which runs StarOS.  

PS.  My Private Message capacity is full, so I can't receive any Private Messages apparently.

I would also be very interested. My router only needs 4 Ethernet ports but the router has to be able to easily do 1gig

Do you have a price point in mind? I am requesting a quote for some dual GigE mini PCIe cards. They would make the Ventana into a very decent multi-port router and with the 1 GHz quad core it will have the cpu to handle it.

OK, I think this can be done quite nicely. I would appreciate some feedback on the following topics:

1. What would you expect a 4 port to cost? 6, 8 10, 12 port?
2. Would you like the OpenWRT firmware which gives a web GUI and more enhanced routing and traffic control?
3. If you want the OpenWRT would you also want radio drivers?
4. OpenWRT allows the use of a SSD for a decent little Network Storage unit. Is this attractive?

I have some eval cards coming. I'll report on the performance after some testing.

Did you manage to do any testing on those eval cards, Lonnie? Are they worth getting?

I received the cards and tested. They are fine.

The problem is that people are not liking the high cost of the Ventana and they expect a case, which I have not been able to source. It is easy to make a DIY unit but most people are expecting it to look fancy.
