[Openswan Users] openswan based router?

I am looking for a router with an openswan implementation and firewall 
built into it.

Currently I am running a pc with a plain linux distro on it, with 
openswan. This pc serves as a router/firwall/ipsec system in a SOHO 
environment. I would like to replace this pc with a router or if that 
does not exist I would like to replace it with a linux pc with low power 
footprint and without moving parts. Do you have any suggestions?

I've looked at the DD-WRT website and I have the impression that it 
could be hard to setup a system that has openswan on it. Are there 
people with good experiences with such a setup and what version are you 
running? Which howto document did you follow to set the system up?

Is there an easier/better alternative to DD-WRT, knowing that I want to 
keep using openswan?

Kind regards,
Bart De Gruyter
