These small and silent embedded PCs come with m0n0wall version 1.8.1 (or later) pre-installed on the ATA Disk-On-Module (Flash / SSD). They were built from refurbished thin client computers. They are fully tested and are guaranteed to be in full working condition. They come with everything needed to be up and running as a m0n0wall Firewall/Router (including ac adapter).You will need to setup the initial IP address by hooking up a keyboard and monitor. After that you can configure everything remotely using the included web administration utility. (for samples of configuration see the m0n0wall screenshots/documentation linked to below). I have personally been using one of these network appliances (as my only firewall/router) without a problem for the last 6-7 years now. I used to have to reboot my Linksys router every couple of weeks due to it hanging or crashing.
When I switching to one of these units I have not once had to reboot (the router). In fact my m0n0wall router hasn't been off since the last time I lost power (several months ago). These are REALLY SILENT PCs. Except for the power LED, I wouldn't be able to tell when they are on. These are POWER EFFICIENT PCs.
Using a watt-meter, I measured the power at the wall at about 15-20 watts! These units are complete Single Board Computers, and can be re-configured with several different operating systems including MANY specialized Linux/FreeBSD Distros.
