Also ... With the addons, virus, spam, spyware, ect.

Would you still want to use programs on each pc/workstation on behind the (untangled) router or would they be safe ?
What exactly is the AT&T 'router'? Is it really a residential gateway (router, switch, and wireless access point in one)? If you disable the router (disable DHCP), then it becomes a just a switch and wireless access point.

The Untangle router will check the packets passing through it for spam/spy/viruses. It will block anything bad it detects and give the user a warning. For example, if you go to a site like gator.com, you find a webpage with the Untangle logo, warning, and option to continue anyway.

My upload taps out RIGHT at 125 Kilobytes per second as well.

I still don't understand though, would you need two NIC's for two ethernet ports, or just one NIC and use the onboard NIC as well?
I'll rerun my benchmarks later tonight.

The router needs a total of two NICs (onboard and/or addin). One NIC will be for the WAN and the other is for the LAN. Untangle can support a third NIC for DMZ. DMZ are for servers that you need to leave somewhat exposed to external access (i.e. web servers or honeypots).

There are other distros that allow the router to become a switch and/or wireless access point. You can add in additional NICs in other router OS but not with Untangle.

Your system is already overkill and can support over 50 clients as is.

Duckie, I feel like you're the most overworked member of OCN lol But I've got a question for you. You said I should consider running my Athlon 3200 Untangle box as a file server. I was wondering if you could give me any more information on how to make that work and the benefits of having a separate file server.

Thanks for all the help

You can remote access files with a file server.

If I'm going to run it with virtualized Untangle what OS should I be using for the file server end of it? Something like Ubuntu? I really have no experience at all beyond Windows as far as operating systems go, as embarrassing as that is.

If your wanting to just run a Windows file server, you can use any Windows OS and VMWare. I use Windows for a file server and it works great. I just use a separate box for Untangle because I wasn't using the hardware.

So what if I'm fresh out of windows keys? I unfortunately changed my major at school so I can't pull them out of nowhere constantly. Could I store files with a Unix OS and virtualize Untangle?

EDIT: Answered that question as I see VMware is compatible with Linux

Ok, if Untangle is actually installed on a version of Knoppix (sp?) Linux, could you run VMware and virtualize Windows to use to work as a file server? Or, even easier, could you run Samba on the Untangle computer?
