Right, Im setting up a p3 800mhz 256mb box as a firewall, file server, media
player and to use for other stuff.
Now I will have
Modem>PC>old wireless router
If I do this, I will have all network traffic coming at it through a single
Instead of plugging all my wired computers into the router, can I shove some
more NICs into the srever, and plug them into this, making it act as a hub
So Id have eth0 eth1 eth2
Will this work.
Will I need patch or crossover cables.
All help much appreciated.
