Hmm... does it support POE passthrough for access points or cameras for example?

Well considering you need to power it with micro usb, I doubt if it supports PoE at all.

Can someone try running a benchmark, like 

time $(i=0; while (( i < 9999999 )); do (( i ++ )); done)

Also I assume it is using USB 2.0 and that is a shame

Thanks for sharing your network specs Draxiom.

I assume your eth0 interface is connected to a 100Mbps device, but that it supports 1000Mbps too.

That makes sense.

I tried, and it threw a usage error. Worked fine on a rpi, but couldn't get it to run on the squirrel. Dunno what about the syntax is wrong for this device. https://pastebin.com/PPF4k3pA

Hmm... I am a little disappointed with the Packet Squirrel in terms of choice of CPU as it appears to use the same one as the WiFi pineapple nano. My main critisim with the WiFi pineapple was the CPU was way to weak to run any meaningful tools like bettercap on it. I hope the packet squirrel doesn't face the same faith.

I am disappointed as well about the specs. Too poor, compared to the existing cheap ARM boards on the market (i.e. RPi Zero, NanoPi, OrangePi R1)...

I am wondering if you could just take a Pi 3 for instance and then solder on a second Ethernet Switch on of the USB slots, or the GPIO and then make the switch of the GPIO. It will be bigger and draw more power but maybe even cheaper. The squirrel has no storage so USB is mandatory as I have understood, so using the micro sd card slot has no disadvantages,

Damn! Wifi, gpio to build the switches, compact square format, micro sd card and more mem. Could be great to port Packet Squirrel do that one! Orded one on Ali.

Hmmm someone forgot a parentheses”)”

time $(i=0; while (( i < 9999999 )); do (( i ++ )); done)
Correct one..
time $(i=0); while (( i < 9999999 )); do (( i ++ )); done)

Not sure what should be ported. You ordered an ARM device capable of running a full fleged Linux distro. 

Use the packet manager to add the tools you need, prepare a setup script and ad it to a systemd service to run on boot ... done. Most of the cheap single board computers available today could do the job.
