Didn't you make a log of some sort of how you did this because I may just want to make one for the fun of it

And Im still kind of unclear on how you got the wireless on it.
Modem -> Router -> Wireless/Switch

Some distros support: Modem -> Router+Wireless/Switch

All wireless card can send and recieve data so any of them can be used as a wireless access point.

Anyone here tried IPCop? That's a very secure routing platform; almost perfect for a 'custom router' I've had throughputs of 200mbps without much processor usage on a 666Mhz Duron (or was it Athlon? dunno).

Heck even DD-WRT works if you use the x86 version; that gave me 200mbps throughput (NATed throughput of course) with literally no CPU usage.

I just got my spare pc setup running Untangle. My pages even seem to load faster even on my wireless. Setup was pretty easy. Here is my config.
modem->Untangle PC->dgl-4300 wireless router with DHCP turned off->all other pc (Desktop, Server, 2 laptops, Wireless Xbox 360.) I'm liking it so far.

Just turn DHCP off on all router connected to the first router. Then they all act like switches.
