Cisco 2600 with an 8-port sync/async serial card would make a nice
replacement and they're pretty easy on the wallet these days. You might
spend as much cabling it as you did for the unit when it's all said and
done? C2500s lingered on in this role for some time as well, though they're
quite a bit slower than the 2600. Or an old Portmaster, those things are
dirt cheap now.
It's always annoying when you get in a situation like this; I had a very
contemporary ATEN IPKVM at work that would get stuck in a reboot loop the
minute I plugged it into a specific VLAN full of traffic. Never could get
them to fix it...

Or maybe customize the WRT software installed on
Yes, I was thinking about that too. There's a guy called "Merlin"
who customizes it. I have not exactly identified the offending
traffic. I'm not sure what I would lose if various "subsystems"
in the router were disabled.
Isn't WRT open source?
