    I’ll like to buy a ALIX device for to use Zeroshell, but i have a doubt:

    If i buy a ALIX, can i use the new image beta10 without PCMCIA? Do i only need an ALIX PCengine (with 500 MHz 256 MB RAM, 2 LAN, 2 miniPCI, 1 Serial and 2 USB) ?

    Thanks.

    The ALIX boards boot from the internal compactflash socket. You don’t need of a PCMCIA adapter.

    I am thinking to buy ALIX or Standard PC. My budget is already 500€ and I need to install a device with the next funcionalities:

    .- 1 FastEthernet (20 Mbps ADSL2+).
    .- 1 FastEthernet with 802.1q (25 VLANs).
    .- 35 users simultaneosly.

    ¿What do you recommend me? ¿Board ALIX or Standard PC?

    Thanks.

    The Geode processors at 500MHz of the Alix boards are fast enough to deal with 35 users authenticated by the captive portal. Surely, the Alix is cheaper and less power waste than a standard PC, then it have not fans and therefore are more reliable.
