+1 Dual Ethernet for Router.

Again there is option for Ethernet over USB, or make routing using one NIC and hub, but Dual Ethernet is much better.

Of course another Ethernet port would be nice, but I think that you will be equally pleased with the performance using a usb-to-Ethernet adapter.
There are other boards out there (which we shall not discuss in-depth because it's against the forum rules :) that have more than one Ethernet port, but have no VGA out, run on slower CPUs (think 400 MHz) and cost more. The Fit PC's magic is its versatility and performance - I have successfully used Fit PC Slim as a NAS gateway and got the 100 mbit/sec from the USB disks attached to it.

I plan to buy a Fit PC 2 as a home gateway as well - you don't need more than 2 interfaces and the Internet interface does not need more than 10 mbit/sec (Unless you're lucky and get fiber connection to your home :) which means it will live very well with a USB1 Ethernet adapter.

My main problem with USB ethernet adapter is another bulky piece I need to have next to the router (and I have fiber, too :)

+1 for dual ethernet (Gigabit ?)

We have several of the V1.0 model which we are using as firewalls (routing and/or bridging) to protect legacy systems (e.g. PowerPC's running vxworks RTOS) too dumb to have iptables or access control. (Some old 10bT ethernet devices can even be overwhelmed by broadcast storms on the open LAN). The FitPC V1 is very nice for this.

I purchased a fit-PC 1.0 about a year ago to use as a firewall and it's been running perfectly since day one. I'm in the market for another firewall and would buy a dual nic model if it was available. The option to purchase without a hard drive would be nice as well.
