Looking for hardware

Hello all,

I am looking for a hardware piece and i hope somebody can help me and give some advice.
if you need more info let me know.
The specs i am looking for:
Quad core
2 or 4gb Ram and 16gb storage.
3 or 4x LAN
will be used as a router.


There's a whole bunch here Tips for getting cheap used x86-based firewall with full Gbit NAT (a PC Engines APU) if you are in the US

I'm a big fan of the Roqos RC10, but they're hard to come by.

Thanks for the reply.
First off im not in the us.
I know about the apu used them before but im looking for something else if possible.

what is your budget ?

RockPro64 and a quad core Intel NIC (older ones might cause you some issues)? :slight_smile:
If you don't mind older hardware this might be of interest?

you can also convert a Dell Wyse 5070 Extended + a quad port intel NIC card
( Intel J5005 - 8GB DDR4 - 64GB SSD )

I was looking at a apu2e5 with those specs around 300 euro so anything cheaper might be an option

Rockpro looks good build im looking for a more plug and play or maybe im not that technical to put another nic into it

From my point of view APU boards and especially their cpu are very outdated now.
For 300€ you can get something better. Did you look the mini-pc on aliexpress ?

Worth a look, bit delayed.

It's a PCIe slot just like any other motheboard/computer =)


it's probably easier to tell us where you are, than where you're not ...
