I have a Centos 5.6 Linux Server configured as Router with NAT for my LAN. There are currently 2 NIC's on my server. One is connected to WAN , a PPOE connection (eth0) and eth1 is connected to a switch which supports my LAN. I have enabled NAT and configured iptables on my server and I am able to access internet from LAN and everything is working fine.
I have a Belkin F5D8233-4v3 Wireless router and I need to configure wireless on my network so that I can access internet from my Laptop. The issue is that I have only 2 NIC's on my server, one Gigabit NIC integrated with my motherboard and another NIC which I am currently using for WAN access and LAN. I need to setup the Belkin as an wireless Access Point.
Can I connect my Belkin to my switch and set it up as a Wireless Access Point?? I have read about setup using 3 Nic's.
Any ideas on how to configure my Belkin as Wireless Access Point with my existing setup???? Is Belkin F5D8233-4v3 supported on Linux...Googling did not provide any information???
