Powerful Linux ISP Router Distribution?

fibrewire writes “I’m building a Wireless ISP using commercial grade, low cost equipment. My main stumbling block is that I cannot find a decent open source ISP class routing distribution. Closest thing to even a decent tool is Ubiquiti’s AIRControl — but even it doesn’t play well with other network monitoring software. I’ve used Mikrotik’s RouterOS for five years, but it just isn’t built for what I need. I don’t mind paying licensing fees, but $300K for a Cisco Universal Broadband Router is out of my budget. Has anyone seen any good open-source/cheap hardware/software systems that will scale to several thousand users?”
