home wireless network setup
I have two wireless laptops, both connect to a linksys wireless router, which is connected to a cable modem to access internet. As of now, I do not have the two laptops networked.
I would like to use an old AMD K6/2 computer as a firewall server (?), through which the two laptops would access the internet, with the same wireless router and cable modem setup. I would also like to use a linux distro on the AMD computer that will be a strong security platform for the wireless network.
How would I go about doing this? What distro should I use on the computer that is used to connect to the internet?
Thanks so much for your help.
