if you've got an old 486 / Pentium I in a dusty corner of your room, install ipcop on it ipcop website, this is a distro specially build for acting as nat router / firewall etc. etc. easy install (took me 10 minutes from boot install till boot system) and connect it to your network... if you don't have an old pc, try set up a nat router with iptables or use a third party server program

hope this helps

hehe that's very handy although the ipcop uses a more advanced iptables script wich is more secure but this is VERY handy for me indeed, thanx for the link!
