Thanks for that.
I'm not actually looking to buy any more hardware, and I'm not
interested in putting a router in front of the FreeBSD gateway at all.
I'd be potentially interested if it were possible to turn off the
NAT/DHCP/Firewall completely, and run it as an ethernet modem only, but
even then I'm not immensely eager to spend more cash that I don't have.
Cheers anyway though.
