It might help if we had some clue as to what your configuration looked like....

Jay,
Have you considered using Leaf firewall?
http://leaf.sourceforge.net/
It is a dedicated system with an extremely small footprint.

LEAF Bering-uClibc 4.0 beta2 released
As of today the second beta of Bering-uClibc 4.0 is availabe for
download. It contains kernel and package updates and bugfixes for beta1.

Most notable changes are:
* The Linux kernel has been updated to 2.6.35.10
* busybox has been updated to 1.18.2
* Introducing shorewall-lite and shorewall6-lite
<quote>

You can use it on a very small 32-bit system.
I use an old K6 (AMD) processor in a disk-less and processor-fan-less
system with 48 MB memory.
This is more than sufficient to control a network with 5 systems an
ipsec tunnel, sometimes rather heavy internet traffic with download
speed > 1 MB.

I have it running for over 8 years and really forget that it is there.
I must confess I still use version 2.1 (linux 2.4.32 32-bit) and
actually have not felt the need to upgrade. As you mention shorewall
setting it up will be familiar. It has a special ssh server (dropbear),
a lean version of dnsmasq (dns-server) and several other necessary
utilities. It can be remotely controlled so it can be installed screen-
and keyboard-less.

Just my suggestion,
Joep

I am including the chcpd.conf file below:

# DHCP configuration for CDJ Systems Wireless subnet of a Belkin Access Point
# Updated to reflect changed ethernet ids. CDJ Systems - 02/27/2011

ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

# DHCP for eth0 - outside world connection via cable modem
# no entries here

# Static subnet for eth3

subnet 192.168.xxx.0 netmask 255.255.255.240 {
option routers 192.168.xxx.2;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.240;
option domain-name-servers 24.xx.xx.127, 24.xx.xx.128;
option ip-forwarding off;
}

# DHCP subnet a wireless Access Point for eth4

subnet 192.168.xxx.32 netmask 255.255.255.240 {
range 192.168.xxx.35 192.168.xxx.39;
option routers 192.168.xxx.34;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.240;
option broadcast-address 192.168.xxx.47;
option domain-name-servers 24.xx.xx.127, 24.xx.xx.128;
option ip-forwarding off;
default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;
}

# Include a static ip address for the Access Point (per vendor)

host bear_den {
hardware ethernet 00:11:50:45:7A:42;
fixed-address 192.168.xxx.33;
}

What else do you need to see?
As I said in my post everything is work ing except the connection to the
Internet (eth0)


Thanks,
Jay
