Re: Smallest cheapest device to run a tor home server?

Maybe someone else has found a better answer but when I researched this I found that although dd-wrt can run tor, there aren't any updated pre-built packages so you will most likely have to compile your own. 

Check out the archives for some help:

I still think in the end it's better to run a cheap computer dedicated to tor than to try to install it onto the firmware.  If you do find an easier solution, let us know! :)

Those are all likely to be insufficient. A used laptop could work, or you
could take a look at sites like http://mini-itx.com/ for small systems.
