if this can be used in conjunction with ddwrt, or similar, then this is just in time for comcast data caps. time to work that compute

Interesting. I don't understand how it could be incompatible, unless there are "modified" funcionalities that this device doesn't support (off the top of my head, I wouldn't know what these might be).

At least they say as much.

Such devices have actually existed for years, but were usually larger than this device, so maybe the form factor will drive sales. Over 5 years ago I worked in tech support and supported these things, and know a lot of people with big houses need them.
