Back in 2009 I bought fanless solution with four Ethernet ports. I was happy and new device worked many years without problems as router. But time is going and today I replaced my old friend with 2GB RAM to new friend with 8G RAM, because new software want more memory. It is very sad for me, but is IT world, which dictate new hardware requirements.
