The PC is already an additional piece of hardware, in addition to the mandatory usb to serial adapter and serial cable.
I wanted a stand alone solution, so that if I bring the A500 somewhere, I dont need a PC dedicated to running a linux setup to do ppp to network it. My router is already a linux machine that does all those things, but managed by a windows application in addition to telnet of course.
