I had some pretty good experiences with older Soekris models (net-4801)
acting as fanless routers and little servers (DHCP, NFS, lighttpd, etc...).

I don't know how well their newer products run on FreeBSD though,
especially after the switch to clang. Others on this list may be able
to add their experiences.
