Re: another UK "alternative" to the pi

<t>For those who don't require the video output and just want a tiny, cheap, networked Linux box then I might suggest trying the TP-Link TL-WR703N and flashing it with OpenWrt. This device *still* isn't available in the UK it seems, but can be ordered from volumerates and a few others for ~$23 deliv...

Re: Alternative to Pi for a NAS/Torrent/Web server ?

<t>At the super-cheap end of the scale you could look at the TP-Link TL-WR703N. It's not available in the UK yet, but you can order it from Hong Kong for about 20 USD. It's entirely Atheros based and is supported by OpenWRT.<br/> <br/> It's probably the closest thing I've found to the Raspberry Pi, ...

Re: Data Transfer Performance Figures

Jamesh,

Thanks for the results, most interesting.

Could I also ask you to perhaps run a throughput test over the Ethernet interface? iperf would probably be the most suitable tool for this task.

Sam
