Help me understand: this computer runs a minimalist Linux distribution that was intended solely to act as a network router, right? The other applications you speak of, do they run right on the computer or is this just a routing appliance with the other applications running on different equipment which get network services from it?

Absolute rubbish, a modern PC will pump more than enough traffic through in Linux to satisfy even the most demanding house with a tiny CPU usage. The lower end Cisco, Juniper, Huawei etc boxes are just based on a processor and PCIe. It's only when you go to the high end and start getting fancy silicon in there that it becomes worth it, but by that point you are running a sizeable ISP.Hz so good wrote:Agreed. You won't see the same level of performance that a dedicated device will provide, especially if you're attempting to run Hauppage vid capture boards. All that is going to steal resources from your router. If you can't get a good Cisco or Juniper router, consider checking some of MikroTiks offerings.
