Summary and Conclusions

For many people, 'bang for buck' will be a major consideration when choosing between the two platforms. On the basis of running m0n0wall as an Ethernet firewall there is little reason not to choose the PC Engines WRAP, since it provides better or essentially equivalent performance for less money, depending on which Soekris product you compare it to.

On the other hand, while relatively more expensive, the Soekris net4xxx line is the more professionally finished and could prove more flexible than the WRAP. This conclusion is based on the net4501 having a 3.3V PCI slot which can be used in conjunction with a suitable PCI card to provide a wireless network interface. The net4801 adds to this with both UltraDMA-33 hard disk and USB1.1 interfaces. Note also while both the WRAP and Soekris devices are FCC certified, anyone considering distributing the WRAP within the European Union (EU) market should give consideration to its lack of CE marking.
