I've setup a tiny wireless network at my school.
My server is a laptop with no harddisk and with only 64mb Ram, so I have to bootup with a knoppix livecd.
DHCP-server is already setup and theres also an apache server to provide a local website for the chat-service.
I'm planning to add support for file-sharing, but what I'm worried about is if all the traffic has to go through me first.
Pcs that connect to the network get an ip from me automatically.
My question is if my server not only acts like a router but also as a switch?
Because obviously my server can't take that much traffic through a 11Mbps wifi connection.
