This is a repost from alt.os.linux. I apologize for multiposting, but I
think this is a more appropriate group for the question.
I have a computer with 2 NICs, eth0 is 10/100, and eth1 is gigabit. I
also have a brand new router from the wonderful folks over at Netgear.
The router is WNR854T and it is the worst piece of shit I have ever
Basically, it's very unstable and it crashes regularly. What I would
like to do is connect the DSL modem directly to eth0 and then connect
the plug eth1 to one of the ports on the router. That way, if it
freezes, my server would not be effected. I searched for tutorials but I
keep finding ether entire volumes on ipchains or something dealing with
2.2 kernel :( Can some one recommend a good tutorial that deals with
this in the context of a modern kernel and perhaps debian? Something for
braindonors is perfect, not that I do not want to learn, just have no
time in the next few weeks :( First few weeks of law school.
As suggested I took a look at few packages, one of them being gShield.
It seams like that would do the trick, but I am afraid that the script
would set something, and later on I would not know how to fix things, if
something was to go wrong. A simple, step by step example on how to set
this up manually would be best, but I can not find one.
Would much appreciate any help,
