    Default Atheros AR8131M NIC?

    Hello all!

    I'e recently discovered UT and think its the most wonderful thing evar! I plan to build a box for myself to use at home. (Then a second one for my office later on).

    This is the board i was looking at, but it has a weirdo NIC. Does anyone know if it will with with UT? I realize i can buy a card which is compatible but i am anal and want it to work. I plan to start out with 2GB of ram then upgrade if needed. This seems to be the only reputable board which supports 4GB.

    Google yields nothing BTW.

    According to the link you posted...

    Cons: The on-board ethernet adapter (ATheros 8131) is not supported in Debian or Ubuntu and you will need to add a supported NIC. There is a way to get the on-board ethernet to work in Linux, but too complicated for me.

    Untangle runs on Debian (lenny), so that's the baseline for what works or doesn't work in Untangle.

    My goal is to spend as close to 250$ as possible. I am so impressed by the amount of features this offers as well as its ease of use. I'd like to recommend it to a few clients who are wanting to purchase 30 billion dollars in Sonicwall gear.

    My ideal hardware would be quiet, low power usage, and have at least 2GB of ram expandable to 4.

    Any ideas or recommendations?

    Which one of these would work with on board nic? They have 2 different Intel based controllers.
