Hello allHi, why not fit a PCI Ethernet Gigabit Network adapter card, and then you can connect any ADSL2+ modem/router, or is it because someone might nick the modem/router.
I'm running a ESXi server here and i want to use one of the virtual machines as a m0n0wall / smoothwall router however im having alot of issues finding a pci adsl2 card???
i can see normal adsl ones but adsl2 seems to be slim and none? im on a 16mbit connection so its a pretty big requirement....
does anyone here know of any adsl2+ pci cards i can get hold of?
Being a 3Com enthusiast, I use one of these in my desktopů
Thanks for the info, i was thinking that actually, what i want to do is use the router itself as the boradband connection and wireless AP BUT i want all the firewall type stuff to go to the actual machine/VM so i can use the more efficient NAT/firewall etc then my plastic basic router
plus its a nice little project to add to my list of fun and games....
im a little bit new to this sort of setup so im not 100% sure how i would connect the router and tell PF sence/m0n0wall/whatever i choose to use that the gateway is the router itself and how i can route all my lan traffic to pf sence
