Nothing's more irritating than failing hardware : what's the use of having a RAID 0+1 setup in your dedicated firewall box at home, when the disks refuse to boot from. I could mount them with a Knoppix live CD, but restoring the bootsector gave me the weirdest errors in Grub and Lilo. As I didn't had that much time handy, I finally decided to install Guarddog, a personal firewall, on my desktop and to initiate the ADSL call from that machine.

Time to start looking for a integrated router/firewall/access point.

Take a look at the Asus WL-500G deluxe. It runs Linux and it has a usb 2.0 port (printer, hub, storage, webcam, ...)
