So why don't you use your Debian System to act as a router and as a file server?

- So for file sharing useful for windows clients also for linux clients samba
or use nfs server
- router just buy a cheap switch or hub and use the routing within your debian
or buy a second network card.
- Visit this site and you have a great how to (doesn't matter if this is not debian)
