The only real problem with routers is ram. Most routers only have 32 MB.
Some routers have 128 MB and are quite affordable. I think 128 MB is the
minimum requirement for the FreedomBox.
One interesting GNU/Linux distribution that runs on routers is.......
DebWrt is all about running Debian GNU/Linux on embedded devices, for
example wireless routers. DebWrt connects two very powerful
technologies: Debian and OpenWrt.
