Wireless cards that transmit? Building DHCP server/router
Looking to replace my dlink wireless router with a true linux router,dns server, firewall... etc. However I would like to be able to have the new linux box handle wireless connections as well and I figure that I can't just get any old wireless card and jam it in the box and expect it to work.
Yes, I know that the dlink router could just be connected to the router in gateway mode and handle the wireless for me, but I would like to see if the linux router could do this as well.
Just trying to simplify my network a bit.
Also, does anyone have any sugguestions for a specialized linux version that makes a good router/FW/dns server/dhcp server, perferably with a web interface that I can access from anywhere in my network and possibly remotely.
Also, is anyone running a similar setup to what I mentioned above and run redundant boxes for failover purposes. And if so, how do you handle the connection to your modem (DSL). Is this even possible to do?
