Re: /24s run amuck
A lot of the "broadband routers" / wireless access points you see in the market are built kind of like this.The thing that surprises me is that there aren't any small vendors offering fairly generic routing boxes, i.e. Intel-based motherboard, lots of RAM, BSD/Linux base OS with Zebra for routing and some of the many PCI cards supporting T1 and DS3 circuits (not to forget GigE...). In most other industries that are dominated by a few large brand-name high-margin suppliers there are also several low-margin suppliers offering generic products with minimal handholding. Why don't we see this in the router business?
