Small Linux Router/firewall behind DLink Hardware router
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 13, 2004
Hello folks, did a search on the forums but was unable to come up with the answer (not to rule out I didn't try enough search terms). It's a pretty quick one though.
A friend of mine is giving me his old Macintosh (still don't know what year or "version". I know NOTHING about mac) and an old PC. I'm hoping the PC is at least a 386 or better.
Here's the scenario I'm trying to create and I THINK it would work.
We have a cable connection, DHCP IP from Road Runner. My parents have a couple computers so they will probably be using the D-link hardware router to get their IP's. (Unless I can convince them otherwise )
I currently get my IP from the router as well. What I want to do is setup the PC as a www/ftp server(Yes, I want three computers in my room), the mac box as a router / firewall, and my main "power" computer as my desktop use machine.
So, first question is, if I can put linux on the mac, I should be able to make it a router, right? Bigger q
What is more secure PCrouter with Linux or hardware router?

What gives you more security - if you connect your PC to Internet via hardware router (like this one: http://www.ctfootscray.com.au/store/...k/DI-804HV.jpg ) or if you use a PC with firewall distro as a router?
Using Linux as a gateway with hardware router
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 21, 2005
I am trying to set up my home network. I have finally got the dreaded BT Voyager 105 modem (USB) installed on my Mepis 3.3.1 box and am looking to leave it as the gateway pc. I've done a LOT of searching and have found a lot of info on firewall distros like ipcop/SmoothWall, server distros like clarkconnect yadda but what i want to do seeems a little bit different.
I want to set up a home network where all pcs can access the internet etc. I have looked up IPMASQ and it seems to be the equiv of windows ICS, acting as the router itself. This is what i had to do when i was using windows as the gateway pc. ICS was acting like a router and as such the hardware router was acting just like a switch. This isn't what i want.
Ideally i will one day buy an ethernet adsl modem so i can use the Belkin router i have that way, but for now, i want to use my linux box to connect to the internet using this naff usb modem they have given me, and then serve the router as though my lin
[SOLVED] Moving drivers from MacOSX to linux (ddwrt) router using Terminal (SSH).

Wireless Router: Asus WL-520gu
Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mini-usb-ftp (SVN revision 14929)
Computer: Macbook Pro (OS X 10.6.8)
Connection: Mac <ethernet> Router
In Terminal.app, I SSH into the router, put in my pass and I see the dd wrt welcome text, etc
# cd /jffs
# mkdir kmods
# cd kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/acm.o /jffs/kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/usbserial.o /jffs/kmods
# mv /Users/Home/Desktop/ftdi_sio.o /jffs/kmods
(The files are sitting on my desktop)
Then I put this script into both the "Commands" tab of the router's web GUI and into Terminal.app to be safe. In the router's GUI, I hit "Run Commands" in the GUI, then "Save Startup".
1) I have no experience with using command lines, and I feel that my "move" commands are the problem. The

hi, a couple of my friends are going to buy new computers - either a desktop or laptop. both will probably buy something Linux compatible if they can get it easily, after my going on about it so much but, it doesn't seem that easy to just buy something you know will run Linux.
what's the easiest way to make sure something you are going to buy will run Linux? are there any good sites, or lists of pre-built desktops which are best to get? if i knew it would work and it was easy, i wouldn't mind putting something together, as i'll probably set them up anyway. BTW, i live in the UK. thanks.
Lenovo x121e i3 Linux Hardware Compatability

This thread's aim is to provide a single up to date source for hardware compatibility for the Lenovo x121e (in particular the i3 variant) laptop. There are a number of detailed threads around that already cover the generals about the hardware, but don't specifically deal with Ubuntu/Linux support. Please post any updates or revisions and I will keep this initial post up to date

Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 9, 2010
Ive recently purchased a number of newly released Toshiba portege R700-15U business laptops. There was (and still is) very little linux related support information available due to it being a very new model so I have started to document the hardware compatibility under ubunutu 10.04. This is not intended to be a review or discussion of the laptop features, but a collation of compatibility info and fixes for this laptop under linux for owners or those looking to to buy one.
The R705 shares almost all the same components as the R700. It just lacks a number of features (bluetooth? fingerprint reader, express slot?, 5400rpm drive?) present on the R700 so there is no reason why it cant be tracked here also.
Feel free to post updates and I will keep this chart fresh.

Linux Hardware Diagnostic Software
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2008
Anyone out there know of a program I can install in Ubuntu (8.04) that will diagnose/troubleshoot hardware (Namely Hard Drive). I need to see if the drive has bad sectors, read it's smart status, etc. I need to check it's health in general. Any ideas?
[SOLVED] linux nat router 2 internal interfaces out on 2 external ones
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 18, 2013
so i am getting 5 static ips in the near future. What i have now is 2 different internal LANs (on different interfaces) masqueraded out on 1 external interface with the default gateway of the router being my ISPs. What I would like to do is have all internet traffic from these 2 internal LANs go out on 2 external interfaces, such that traffic from 1 LAN will appear to have 1 static IP, and traffic from the 2nd will appear to have the 2nd. Is this kind of thing possible at all? I should add that all 5 of the statics have the same gateway address to the isp.
I have tried this with no results:
Could there be a "Linux Hardware Configuration wiki"?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2005
It was something that occured to me a while ago, as a vague "Is this possible?" thought.
Essentially, it boils down to:
There's lots of guides on how to setup just about every piece of hardware going scattered around the Web
Getting a piece of hardware working tends to be a matter of having the right kernel options, software, and configuration files present
If you buy a new piece of hardware, it would be really helpful if you had one big, centralised database that could tell you exactly what changes to make to your kernel, what software you need to download, and what you might need to put into the config file(s)
(Pipe dream) If you could set this database up so software on the user's PC could detect new hardware, access the database, tell you what changes needed to be made, and maybe even make those changes all by itself, you could eliminate a lot of "hardware is so hard to install under Linux" whinges on fourms like this one. Especially if you could figure out
