Too small.  It couldn't handle multiple static IP's very well, didn't do 
a proper DMZ (not enough physical interfaces), and I was running into 
memory limitations.

And now with one of the people here at the house (one of my users?) 
being involved with the FSU project (Hard Light Productions for more), 
as well as hosting two, perhaps three very soon, svn repos for projects, 
and the torrents associate with said projects, the WRT just isn't quite 
up to the task.

I've already retired my old Linksys running DD-WRT.  Less power, sure, 
but it just couldn't handle the load.
