I do the networking in my house, and hang out with guys that do networking in
small offices that have a few T1s. Now I am talking to people about a DS3
connection for 500 laptops*, and I am bing told "a p4 linux box with 2 nics
doing NAT will not be able to handle the load." I am not really qualified to
say one way or the other. I bet someone here is.
* for wifi, going to be using this system:
March 13-17 (testing a week or 2 before) for PyCon in Chicago.
If anyone wants to see it in action, etc. drop me a line.
