Raspberry Pi router

I was watching the router episode and was wondering about doing the same thing with a raspberry pi.

I figured i could install a usb nic and a usb wifi dongle.

possibly also hooking up a powered usb hub and adding a hard drive

I also didn't understand what the issue was that Darren had with making his router an access point.

I am over all just wondering what the thoughts and concerns for doing this.

would the 512 ram and 700 mhz processor be good enough for the performance they were trying to create in the episode?

The Ethernet on the Raspberry Pi is controlled by USB, so its gonna be a little slow.
