If your willing to spend a little more money there are high quality
boxes that can run linux out of flash such as this: This box consumes
minimal power.  It's not blindingly fast, so I wouldn't recommend for
lots of vpn user or greater than 10mb Internet connection but it is
enterprise quality, much better than the little linksys box.  If you
google around, I believe I've seen web sites that sell a wide range of
boxes like this in Europe.  Boxes with the atom processor will be quite
a bit faster than this one, though the via eden box actually has
hardware acceleration for openvpn (there are openvpn config options to
enable it).

Installing ubuntu  or other firewall distribution on these boxes is
relatively straightforward.  I just plugged in a usb dvd/cdrom drive and
booted the installation disk.

If you still want to play with cheap boxes, engenius might be a little
better than cisco/linksys.
