you'll need 2 nics, right. 

If you use the wireless in the DSL modem, you'll be bypassing the BSD server.
Which may be fine if the kids' computer(s) cant do wireless. (beware of USB
wireless dongles ;) )

what I have planned to do is use a non-wireless DSL modem in bridged mode
(DLINK 504T), connect to the BSD box.

BSD box  with 2 NICs ('wan' and 'lan') as well as a DLINK G520 PCI Wireless
card (Atheros chipset) and make the BSD box the wireless AP.

And throwing in a small flash IDE drive for faster bootups.
