You can just use an old computer as a firewall. My own network has an old
Celeron 300Mhz with 32Mb SDRAM and 5gb of HDD space! I think that's enough.
Non occorre chissà che mostro per un firewall... Puoi usare un vecchio
scasseotto come ho fatto io! Celeron 300Mhz, 32Mb di SDRAM e HDD da 5 gb...
Basta e avanza!

With iptables you can use the same pc.
Con iptables puoi fare tutto su un solo computer come con 2! Devi solo
attivarlo nel kernel e impararti i comandi con qualche howto...
