Re: [PLUG] Embedded 3-Port Firwall?

If you check the respective web sites for OpenWRT, DDWRT, etc. , they all have device compatibility lists. You should find multiple devices that will meet your needs.Â

Personally, I use a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND. It has 1gb interfaces, USB, and Wifi. I was running Asterisk on it for a while, but now it pretty much just does the typical firewall + wifi routine.

Has anybody created such a device? ÂAny advice to offer?
