>> I'm currently using an old Linux box as a firewall/router.  I'm running "shorewall" in a 3-interface configuration (WAN, DMZ, & Local zones). (  This system works great, but I'm looking for something that consumes less energy, so thought about loading OpenWRT or some other embedded Linux that would have the same ease-of-use as shorewall.  That way I would run a simple router instead of a 10-year old PC.
