can anyone speak to the bandwidth available through one of those linksys
routers flashed to linux. I'm currently using ipcop on a pentium 166 and I
can get 8 million bit per second downloads through my Comcast cable modem
I recently had the opportunity to try a linksys (befvp41) and a netgear
(fvs318) router (they weren't mine so I couldn't modify them) I only got
about 6mbs through them.
normally that would be good enough (how many sites can deliver files that
fast right?). Still, I just don't like the idea of losing bandwidth.
