That is correct. Bring your own Wi-Fi cards. It has 3 mini-PCI slots for
that purpose (only one of which I will ever use, maybe). It has 16MB of
on-board flash (so your root FS and kernel must fit in 16MB), a 680MHz
MIPS CPU, and 128MB of RAM, which is ample for me. I only use about 30MB
of RAM, even with my application running. Plus it includes several nice
web-based UIs for configuration. It also has UART, JTAG and GPIO
headers, which can be handy (haven't used them yet but I might use the
GPIO for a SPI interface to another device).
