Thanks for that.

And thanks to Ben for his suggestion too, I thanked him offline.

Thanks to Jason who emailed me offline suggesting Advantech.

Advantec has a similar good looking board, the AIMB-213:

A project to build a custom router for my home network to replace my
billion box, and experiment with ipv6. It'll be about 5 times the price
and 100 times more work, but sounds like fun.

So I'm after a low power mainboard with a least dual NICs (Intel pref),
mini slot for wireless, PCI slot for ADSL2+ modem card. If I can't find
an ADSL2+ modem I'll bridge my existing router.
