Linux function as hub


Hello.

I'm setting up a RH8.0 wireless access point. I managed to set it up as an ordinary gateway, but what i really want is to have the same subnet on both eth0 and eth1. I want it to be ip-less, and redirect all recieved traffic between the two interfaces (just like a hub).
How can i do this?

I have a standard 2.4.18-14 kernel

( Sorry if beeing in wrong forum.. )

You could do that with IP Forwarding. I don't know about the ip-less part though.

Guess i have to do some try and failing. Currently the machine is functioning well just as a firewall, so I'm not in a hurry. But can I make an interface listen to all adresses?

Yes possible.
It's like making a layer II switch. Works with every protocol.
Google on bridging and linux

Thank you for the replies. But the soureforge bridge only works from wired network to the wireless. On their sites, they tell that it is a known problem with some wireless cards. Thanks for all the help anyway.
