Here's another one

* Add the Quagga routing software package to make an OSPF/RIP/BGP router
* Install the Apache web server with Perl/PHP/Python/etc scripting environments
* Use the Asterisk software for a cheap VoIP server for a remote office
* NAT/Firewall
* Web content filtering via the Squid proxy package
* Make a captive portal system for wireless networks in cafes or other public access areas
* DNS server using the venerable and always popular BIND software
* Create a network sniffer with the tcpdump utility which writes data to a remote NAS or other storage device
* Combined with a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or an NFS server, a DebRouter can do most anything.
