Project Zeus - Mini-ITX Router under Linux (Core Duo) Tags: New Build Routers Zeus Core Systems Last response: August 3, 2007 11:12 AM in Systems Share QuakeCH July 22, 2007 6:00:31 PM Good morning everyone, Project ZEUS : I have recently made the acquisiation of a Mini-PC. After ATX, Mini ATX , welcome to the Mini-ITX. This project has for objective to replace my actual router, the new router should provide over 300Mbps throughpath routing. (Hope so). The system has 2 Gigbatis Connectors (PCI-E internal) and a Core Duo 1.66Ghz processor and 1Gb of DDR2 ram memory. The system should work with a Flash Memory but I prefer to use an HDD IDE because we have more space and it's more simple with drivers actually. Actually the full system costed : 310 CHF =~ 186.64 Euro =~ 258.03 Dollars Details about Mainboard : Company : ITOX Model : G5C100-N-G 2 Slots SODIMM DDR2 2 S-ATA 1 IDE 2 PCI-E Network 1Gbps 3 Ports COM 1 LVDS 1 Mini-FDD Details about processor: Company : Intel Type : Core Duo Model : T2300 (SL8VR) Speed : 1.66Ghz FSB : 667Mhz Some screenshots : Mainboard Test Phase 1 That's all, I'm going to keep this thread updated as soon as I received the new cooler (See the screenshots and you will for sure understand why). Have a nice day, Quakenet Swiss - WGET More about : project zeus mini itx router linux core duo QuakeCH July 23, 2007 4:42:00 PM I received today the Cooler. Actually I made some test and I can route something like 168Mbps actually which is low for me. I think that's a problem with the computers or something similar. (Performances tests were made with IPerf). QuakeCH July 25, 2007 8:14:34 AM Good morning, The latest tests were not really what I waited for. This time I made the different tests from 2 Linux Computers (Debian and Ubuntu). Connection from PC to Router - Avg Speed : 668Mbps Connection from Laptop to Router - Avg Speed : 658Mbps Connection from PC to Router (Routing process) to Laptop - Avg Speed : 655Mbps My objectif was 300Mbps and I have now 655Mbps what more ? The problem with the test that was made with Windows are with the TCP Optimization in Windows which really Sux. During all the test the maximum usage of processor were : 1% Core0 , 0% Core1 I have better performances then all router in the listing on TomsNetworking Chart Have a nice day Related resources Mini-ITX Motherboard for NumberCrunching - Forum Recycling old components with a mini-ITX m/board - Forum NAS home file server - Forum Home server build sugestions plz - Forum Advice on Linux Build That Will Last Me 10 Years - UPDATED!!! - Forum Can't find your answer ?
