You could get a cheap switch to replace your xo cable with in case you want

Also when you setup IPtables i would suggest taking a look at a program
called fwbuilder Its a helpful interface for keeping your rules straight,
though it does make very messy looking chains.

I have a hub, but I'd rather not use it because it takes up space and generates heat.

In the past I used some kind of utility to create firewall rules, but I forgot what it's called.

Since I would need to buy another NIC to make the GNU/Linux router work, I'm considering buying a $30 D-Link wireless router. Of course, if I find a cheap NIC, I'll go that route.
