Question Turning my Linux Router into a wireless router


Hi all,

Quick question about wireless networking - not really after specifics here.

Basically, i'm currently using a linux box as router, i'm using IPTables.

One NIC goes to my cable modem, the other to a switch.

My question is, what would be need to convert the router into a wireless router. Would it just be a case of replacing one of my NICs with a wireless one?

Any advice would be cool!

Cheers,

Basically, yes. Replacing your NIC with a wireless one and getting it to work, e.g. take care of kernel modules, software utilities, configuration files, etc.
