Dear ILUG gurus,
What do you think of the relative merits
of a WiFi ADSL modem serving a number of laptops
versus a simple ADSL modem connected to a desktop computer
with a WiFi router (Linksys WRT54GL) on the other side?
I have the latter setup, basically because I am using
an old Eircom ADSL modem.
But this strikes me as having some advantages
in understanding and controlling what is going on.
(I'm running shorewall under CentOS on my desktop.)
However, this seems to be an unusual viewpoint?
