    Most of you are aware that, unlike previous versions, version 3 and above of the WRT54GS use a cheaper processor which contains an integrated switch. I was wondering how a router with a system-on-chip would compare to one with a CPU/MAC one chip solution in terms of speed and performance?

    It might be cheaper pricewise, but aren't system-on-a-chips generally better than discrete parts when it comes to total heat/power/life expectancy?

    I thought it was a good thing to move stuff on-die, especially if any one part going bad would make the whole box useless (pretty true for the linksys, or anything thats on one pcb)

    Its still a 200mhz part too.
