My wife already agreed to pay a couple bucks a month for a replacement
router since the telco agreed to juggle the package so it works out
microscopically cheaper than it was. I'll have to see what we get but I
don't think it is a name brand.

I do have a few boxes that would work great as routers but I couldn't stand
the noise or the heat. Are you guys using affordable non-deafening
cool-running hardware or are you comparing rack servers with consumer stuff?
