Just wondering what the lowest powered hardware people have been able to get away with?
I’ve got a couple strange little computers I’m thinking about trying to use for pfSense routers. These were originally for, uhm, roadway message boards, of all things. My dad works for the state and scrounged them from the garbage.
Anyway, they have a 500MHz AMD Geode processor, dual 100M NICs, 256MB RAM, a CF card slot, and a “laptop” IDE connector. I just purchased a CF to SD card adapter. Just to see what would happen. They wouldn’t need to be able to move data fast or anything. My parents house has 6Mb DSL, and my sister’s house has I think 12Mb DSL.
The board is the WAFER-LX3-800-W.
