comment How can I produce high CPU load on a Linux server?
@ott Specifying -j without a number is a bad idea idea to stress the CPU, it will stress your RAM instead.

@barlop Thanks, I think I understand it now! You have confirmed what I suspected. I think it is possible to put this modem in bridge mode, doesn't seem so difficult from what I've read.

@slow_excellence So basically just for sharing the connection in an inexpensive way, I need a switch. If I want more features, I need to buy a router or install a new firmware on the modem/router, right?

Thanks, @barlop! I don't know whether I can mess up with the firmware, because the modem is not mine (it belongs to the ISP). Unless I can return to the original one later. But Tomato sounds delicious :P

Thanks for your answer! Yes, the Motorola has only one socket. The DNS thing I don't think it would... but would a switch provide some kind of bandwidth control?
