Once I have the hardware, it's just a matter of figuring out how to set up
the iptables for NAT routing and appropriate firewalling. Actually, since I
don't have wireless needs at the moment, I can start working on it this
weekend even before I receive the wireless card, assuming I have sufficient
hubs (which I might).
For iptables, you probably want to look into various packages that
already do this. Firestarter comes to mind, but I am not sure if it will
measure up to your two lans requirement, LAN and WLAN.
Should you need any help regarding iptabels in this scenario, ask here
and I will try to pitch in. I already have a similar setup running with
my own iptables script. I am no networking expert, but I will be able to
at least list what worked for me.
But rest assured, it is fun doing this stuff!
