I feel pretty disappointed by the lack of firmware projects for the RV series. They seem to have a lot going for them. The Intel IXP425 processors have plenty of horsepower, yet the existing firmware doesn't have the flexibility to harness the power of the platform. Plus although qos works to an extent, once the number of connections increase, (like when using Bittorrent) even web browsing comes to a halt although qos is set up to give it priority. I recently started evaluating m0n0wall and pfSense (based on m0n0wall) and I love the flexibility and performance they provide. I was figuring that they may work better on the RV series platform than the existing linux one for these reasons: 1. FreeBSD's network stack provides much more performance than the current linux kernal. pf is supposed to be more efficient. altq's qos performs much better 2. The installation is lighter. pfsense, which has more features than m0n0wall has an installation ISO of 26meg the embedded version is 21meg. This is with all of the xtra packages and the drivers for all supported nics, ide controllers etc which wouldn't be needed for the RV. the rv082 has 32mb ram 32mb flash and a 533 mhz IXP425 proc. m0n0wall is designed to work on lightweight hardware like the Soekris 3. packages make it easy to customize functionality and add features What would be involved in making this work on the RV's? After all, the BSD's are similar enough to Linux that it shouldn't be a huge change. Why waste time modifying Linksys's bloated, buggy code when you could probably get this to work much better. Please don't tell me i should do it as i possess nowhere near any of the skills that would be necessary to implement this.
