More thoughts on WRT54G

Thinking about, the WRT54G wouldn't fully eliminate the need for the firewall box, for the moment at least. Untill I get upgraded to the new Ethernet based Homechoice, I'm still stuck with the somewhat odd USB based serial PPP setup, so I would still need something sitting in between the WRT54G and the homechoice box. What I would want to do is make that setup appear as similar as possible to the Ethernet HC setup, so when I do get the upgrade it would be a matter of plugging the router from the bridge pc and straight into the new HC box (though I suppose I might need to power cycle the router).

Fortunatly, my friend Graham already has the ethernet hc, so I might have to go around and have a look at it.
