Icebox2 - Does it have normal router capabilities?
« on: September 15, 2006, 05:48:57 PM »
Just got the Icebox2 and got it working quite easily. Happy so far.

Just have some questions on if it has further capabilities, namely some of it's orignal router features.

Is it possible to connect your broadband connection straight into the WAN and have other pcs also use the connection and lastly is the print server capability still possible?

Just thinking of consolidating the routers. I can rearrange such that I'll only need the one...

Haven't found any links or faqs on the the modded router, are there any?

Thanks

Rob

No. The hardware has been completely repurposed to act as a combination of a wireless bridge and an embedded host.

You can connect other devices, such as an Xbox, to the LAN ports and the Toppy to the USB port, but that's it.

The design goals were simplicity and reliability.
