I haven't tried yet.  Most of these routers use the Broadcom chip
whereas mine has an Atheros mini-PCI card.  I know some people use the
half-free driver (i.e. the GPL one that needs the fairly large blob);
I haven't had time to try the fully free driver yet.

I've no idea... how do you measure that?  I've no big complaints
(altough it could certainly be faster), but then again, I'm not a big
"power user" in that respect.

OK, some simple tests.

Downloading something from the university mirror (laptop -> router ->
ftp mirror):
lftp ftp-uxsup.csx.cam.ac.uk:/pub/linux/kernel/kernel/v2.6> mget linux-2.6.15.tar.gz
49901424 bytes transferred in 23 seconds (2.06M/s)

Copying something from my laptop to the router:
via SSH:   100%   37MB 488.4KB/s   01:17
via ftp:   38509207 bytes transferred in 29 seconds (1.26M/s)
