I had intended to put the Atom box into service as router, but it
had a motherboard problem, with presence of a good
PS/2 keyboard preventing it from booting (I know, odd).
In the end I went with the Asus router and Asus-wrt Merlin
firmware discussed in many broadband forums, etc.,
on the web, as it supports VLAN tag. It is a good alternative
and works for my needs.
I notice when I nmap scan for telnet around my IP range,
I'm seeing only about 27% have a port 23 open. Perhaps some
IPs are not allocated, or have some other router from Bell.
I've asked a couple of people I know with FibreOP to test
their telnet vulnerability. They have the same Actiontec
router I was given and yet telnet isn't open. Mystery as
