I apologize for the crudeness of my MSPaint drawing, but please view my diagram of what I'd like to accomplish:
Currently, all devices are connected to 1 wireless router. I would like to make my own subnet, with a box in-between my subnet and the shared wireless router, so that I can learn about IDS, traffic analysis, etc. I was also given a cisco PIX firewall to play around with, and it'd be an added bonus if I could incorporate that into my network.
The reason for this proposed architecture is so that I can monitor all MY traffic, without seeing anything going on with my roommates' traffic.
Is it possible to have my desktop connect to the wireless router with internet via wireless card AND share that connection via the ethernet card, hooked to wireless router 2?
cable modem -> wireless router -> desktop pc connected wirelessly -> wireless router 2 getting internet from wired connection to desktop pc -> laptops connected wirelessly
The PIX can be left out for now, but I'm wondering if it could eventually be incorporated?
