Building a Cable/DSL Router Out of Old Junk




INGREDIENTS:
  • One relic of a computer from my closet including:
    • Case
    • Motherboard
    • AMD-K5 *
    • RAM (16 MB) *
    • Floppy Drive
  • Two NIC's from the junk store ($16)
  • Some CAT-5 cable
  • An ethernet hub (Only if serving more than one end-user)
  • One floppy disk formatted to 1680k (fdformat /dev/fd0u1680)
  • EigerStein (PPPoE configured) LRP disk image

* Some of this is total overkill for this project. In theory, this will work with a 386 and a lot less RAM... not only just work, but would be preferred, since older CPUs don't use fans like this K5 does. ( fans == ( annoying && point-of-failure) )
