Uhm, I should really clarify that I should have written "switches" instead of "routers". I hope the tag filtering make more sense in this context. 8-) I'd be interested in something that offers more than four Ethernet plugs per PCI slot, and the only way I know to get that are switches. But those with 802.1Q tagging and proper VLAN separation are all rather noisy.
