The indoor box, with six(!) antenna knockouts looks pretty nice for
US$40.  I expect you would have to have 100s of these made for
yourself to beat or match that price point.

Consider the mini-PCI expansion options.  I found a few:

Radios, a/b/g/n
Firewire
video capture 1 - 16 channel
GPS
MPEG4 A/V compression
Serial ports

Perhaps none of these are really the best approach.  USB probably
offers more choice.  But, Hey!  Look at the cool toys.

What mini-PCI card would reduce the en/de-cryption burden on the
processor, so that secure wifi can happen, and still leave processing
cycles for interesting stuff?  Anything?
