BSD/386 can handle full routing table with some amount of tweaking.
Also, gated becomes essentially useless as soon as system starts
to do paging; so it's better 64Mb or more :-)

Reliability of 486 platforms... closer to non-existant.  ciscos
do not cost $$$s for nothing.  Also, ciscos are much more

There are several real-life E-1 BSD/386 routers in the Internet,
though owners want to replace them with ciscos (capacity problems).
