Just one question here. If I plug the router to the lan NIC and configure it to take DHCP and DNS settings from the BSD box, then the wireless will not bypass the BSD machine, will it? > 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. I see. I can do the same but that would render the wireless Dlink useless so I wonder if I can still use it and control connections via the BSD machine. Thank you very much!
