    How do I setup Xubuntu to be my internet router w/2 nics?

    HI,

    I have 2 nics in my Xubuntu laptop, and I want to use it to be my broadband router. I have an ath0 (netgear wireless) card and an embedded eth0 in my laptop, and I want to use the wireless card as the internet interface, but share the connection with the computers attached to my wired interface.

    My config is like this:

    atho = 192.168.1.4 gw 192.168.1.1 (static -connected to broadband wireless)
    etho = 192.168.0.1 no def gw (static - connected to wired network)

    I know I need to use ipchains and/or ip masquerading, I just don't know how to set that up. I can see both networks from these nics just fine - now I want to take it to the next level and actually share the wireless connection.

    Can anyone point me to information that will help me set this up?

    Thanks,

    Mike
