OPEN Router Board – New Interesting Hardware ?

April 30th, 2008

There are no interesting antennas laying around so lets look for new hardware.

LATVIA is maybe a good place to life and study – the home of Mikrotik OS and their routerboards a new company is bringing new open router board.

Open embedded hardware bring us open software solution for wireless networking. They deigned small router board based on PowerPC cpu running on 266 or 333MGhz, 2 mini PCI slots, 2 LAN, 8MB flash, compact flash and up to 512 or RAM. /info about system specs is from openrb site and video on tube from cebit/

There are two interesting things here – folks from openrb says that software will be FREE and other thing is that You may be will be able to choose hardware configuration for your router. Mentioned price is not so good, its around 100 euros for full configuration of the board.

So everything looks good on paper will be great to have one more company building quality hardware.

Bad thing is that they do not yet sale this. We will wait and see will this new open router board will be born.

And one last thing using only open source they can’t get all goodies of payed OS, so maybe hardware is not all.
