In case you missed it ... here's an awesome low-cost router

This week's "Right Tool for the Job" feature puts the spotlight on a powerful combination -- M0n0wall software with a Soekris embedded computer. Essentially, you can use this to build a full featured router in a small box for under $300. So before you go and purchase an expensive Cisco router to handle a small office or a remote office (or even some medium-sized offices), take a look at David Spector's post about M0n0wall. There's also an image gallery that gives you a look at the product and some screen shots of the interface.
