While upgrading my WL500W to 128MB I noticed that the WL500W has soldering isles and holes in the PCB to connect a PCMCIA connector!

Has anyone tried to connect a PCMCIA card to the router? Did it work?
If I connected a SATA card and a SATA HDD, would that speedup the transfer rates compared to a USB drive? I have read several times that 2MB/sec is about the max with USB but why is that? Is that a hardware or a driver issue?

Very skeptical since the processor works @ 260MHz.

What is the bottleneck? If both storage and network interfaces use DMA, the CPU shouldn't be the bottleneck.
