Hrm that's a bit pricey and goes against my setup needs. I specifically want
a GPL firmware that I can install (either DD-WRT... but more than likely
Tomato) so that I have full control over the connections as opposed to
whatever Linksys want me to do with their router.
Has anybody here achieved a failover setup using an open source firmware? If
so I would really appreciate the help. If I was any good at coding I'd grab
the source for Tomato and modify it to suit my needs but sadly I can code a
command line program in Pascal at best...
