I use an old 75 MHz PC as the router. It has the fw rules,
squid, named, dhcpd.
If I'd wanted to do a bang up job for a customer (rather
than myself) I would have used a Soekris. It's smaller and
takes up less room at the customer's site. However it would
have cost money and I had the PC already. Other people are
using NSLU2 in this role.
