Using NAS server as a router/modem.

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, i am planning to build an encrypted NAS server and since it is always going to be on i am considering whether i can do away with my router. I would like to use the server to connect to my broadband connection then share the connection and local files over lan/wlan to save power and clutter. It may in the future also be used as http and/or sftp server depending on how i make my files available online (still researching this). I was planning to use this hardware: ASUS E45M1m / AMD e450 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/E45M1M_PRO/ 1 x REALTEK BD2961 ADSL2+ PCI Card ADSL Modem http://www.bul (HowTos)
