I believe the mirabox has an internal expansion slot. You might be able to get a nic card
for it. You might also need a driver. But I think it is the same one openrd uses so you
might be able to find one.

I need to replace my Juniper SSG5 access gateway. I have outgrown it.
I need more VLANs, more ports, more DHCP and RA than I can get. Also I
want to split fuctionality. I am looking for 3 boxes, plus one
standby. I would rather buy something cheap on ebay, but could go the
DIY route. I want longevity with Fedora on it (like 4 Years).
I figure that the WAN-facing box should have 2 WAN ethernets that will
run things like PPPoE through ISP provided bridges and at least 3 LAN
interfaces. The LAN-side boxes (2) will need 8 LAN interfaces (2 tied
up in the router network).
Is there reasonably prices hardware out there configured like this with
an ARM chip that will go forward beyond F18 (which I understand that
F19 will not support ARMv5 of my pogoplug?). Of course a stable
RH/Centos distro in the future would be great! (RHEL 7?)
Earlier here, I was pointed to the cubieboard for DIY. I would have to
find a 4 and 8 port (100Mb each) ethercard that is fully VLAN/routing
addressable for it. Plus case and etc.
I would like to stay around here for a while working with Fedora-arm and
not have to learn something else like dd-wrt.
And for my distributed 802.11 APs perhaps RaspPI based running HostAP?
Again instead of dd-wrt.
Finally I am getting pulled into the ETSI Network Function
Virtualization (NFV) work (I met a couple Redhat people at the meeting
this week), and it would be interesting to do some virtualized CPE
funtions here over the summer.
