    I've always thought the Raspberry Pi would be a pontentially much more useful device if it had two Ethernet ports instead of one. It could be a NAT box, Firewall, TOR proxy, or any number of other things. By separating these functions form the computers you're trying to protect, you potentially have a lot more security. Dare I dream there will be a model with two Ethernet ports sometime in the future?

    The Pi does not have native Ethernet anyways. You can add a second one with an 100Mbps USB2-to-Ethernet adapter without losing much. For native interfaces, an Alix board may be a better choice.

    What irks me more is that the Pi has issues with quite a few USB hubs. In fact I found none that worked well in a stress-test (two memory sticks connected as RAID1, always lost one during re-sync, no matter what sticks I used), and I tried several.

    I'm doing exactly this. I have a Pi firewall running with three total ethernet ports (the third is a wifi DMZ). I got another Pi and it's running asterisk for the house with a POTS connection via an Obi110. However, based on the load and RAM usage I could be using a single Pi for both. Speed tests show that the Pi performs the same as the full scale computer that it replaced. Check my blog for more details on the firewall rig. I haven't blogged about the asterisk setup yet. Steve
