Subject: Re: testing mips port ?

I'd use an arbitrary router supported by openwrt. I made good 
experience with the wrt500gp
Should be like ~25Eur on ebay.
Openwrt because it's hack-friendly, allowing you to rebuild the whole 
firmware in any obscure way you like.

If it's just about running some arbitrary binary to confirm a crash, i 
can do that.
