A quick look over the OpenWRT wiki shows this as only arm based option
with 4 ports.
There are much more powerful MIPS systems such as the new C7 Archer
based systems like this: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wdr7500
Well I learned something.
DON'T get a wnr854t; turns out they have real power problems:
I am working with the ebay seller on a rma. :(
after a lot of advice at openwrt, I am going with the tp-wdr3600.
I have learned a lot about the LAN port design on these boxes, and how
really the SCO has only one or two ethernet ports; all the rest is done
with fancy drivers to handle each separately. See
for how linksys did it. It
would be nice to see such designs implemented and supported for arm.
