fon tells us to use their fonera platform, others tell us their fonera hardware isn't all that great.

buffalo doesn't respond at all.

ubiquiti suggest we use their forums to figure out solutions.

excito gave us from free hardware, and bridges and relays work really well on the system, even under load.

the chosen buffalo works well if you plug a 1gb usb stick into it. bridges run just fine on it.

the dreamplug and pirate box are other options

I talked to Eben from freedombox fame. The excito is the best hardware, but also the most expensive. The buffalo router and some new guruplug from globalscale are fine candidates as well. He's talking to global scale about getting a 1000 samples, we will get a few and test them out too.
