[ubuntu-uk] Home network configuration

Hi there,

I have 6 PCs at home, and have them all connected to a Netgear DG834G
wireless ADSL modem. Some PCs are connected directly, others via
wireless. The current topology is:

ADSL Router-->Home LAN

One of my PCs is an Ubuntu server running squid and dansguardian and
I'd like to configure the network as follows:

ADSL Router-->ubuntu-server-->Gigabit wireless switch-->Home LAN

The bit that's missing is the gig wireless switch. Do such things
exist? If not how else can I configure the network? I need it to be
gigabit because the ubuntu server is running BackupPC and throws
around a lot of data.

Any insights appreciated!
