RE: Cyclades Router OS License



What university?  UFRDJ? UFRGS?

A router is a processor and multiple interfaces.  It is very simple.  I
would think you are interested in making a 3 port Ethernet router.

That would be fairly simple.  The OS in some routers, such as the rebel
routers, is Linux with the ip stack it provides used for routing. The
Linksys WRV54g and the RV042 both also run Linux in commercial products
here in the US.

 The linksys source packages for their Linux based routers

By what i see, any hardware which i could program an OS would be nice, 
because i don't  want to do advanced features.

But i mean: a complete router, not an board like PC300 or using Linux 
Router features. It has almost every implementation already done.
