Hi Michael,Thanks for your suggestion. Al always searched for boards as a drop-in replacement for the 6501 and never thought about multi-NIC PCI(e) cards to get the required number of nics. It even gives an other option: Go for a somewhat more power consuming Core-series processor and virtualize both my 6501 and 5501 on it.
Best regards,Wesley

For that application, start with an apollo lake board, something like 
ASUS PRIME J3355I-C, add dual or quad port nic. It'll run absolute rings 
around a net6501.
