2 years ago I bought one of these:


#67 inc VAT.

Or rather the model that was then available a: 751G-2HnD
What is found at the link above looks pretty much the same. I have a FTTC
connection and I use IPv6. It does WiFi. It is Linux based with a custom config.

It works well, I don't have much by way of complaint. Setting it up takes a
little thought and you need to learn the config tools: web and a special purpose
shell that you ssh in to. Understanding iptables helps.

My only disquiet is that I do not have source code to the OS running on it. I
would really like to run something where I could compile/install a version of
Linux or OpenBSD for which I had a high degree of trust.
