Came across this white paper from Ubicom, which contains a routing performance comparison on p.6 that looks interesting: http://www.ubicom.com/pdfs/whitepapers/IP5K-DWP-CMP-12.pdf (CPU, Routing Performance, Frequency/Arch) Broadcom 5352 30Mbps 200MHz / MIPS Atheros 2313 53Mbps 230MHz / MIPS 4K RDC R3211 38Mbps 150MHz / (ARM 9) Intel IXP-425 70Mbps 266MHz / (StrongARM with HW accl.) Realtek 8651B 170Mbps 200MHz / (Lexra with HW accl.) Ubicom IP3023 150Mbps 250MHz Ubicom IP5160 185Mbps 275MHz Then there's a footnote on the Realtek 8651B: "The Realtek chip has a hardware accelerator that offloads routing from the CPU, so this number doesn't show CPU performance." The high performance of the Realtek 8651B is not totally surprising considering it's the CPU used in the Netgear WPNT834 which ranks top in the WAN to LAN throughput chart at SmallNetBuilder.com: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=156 What's most interesting is that the WPNT834 sells for $150 whereas the Linksys WRV200 sells for $70 and contains basically the same hardware except for the wireless NIC (same CPU, same 4MB flash, same 32MB RAM), making the WRV200 probably the best bargain in hardware among the Linksys routers. I've used the WRV200 for two months, but the Linksys firmware is really buggy and always crashes if I did BT. Thibor, you mentioned earlier that you may be taking a look at porting HyperWRT to the WRV200. Is that still a possibility?
