You can do it in the following ways:

1) Box with one NIC
	- connect the box to your home network
	- disable DSL router`s DHCP for your home network
	- start dhcpd on the box giving ip addresses to your home clients and tell=
them that the box itself is the gateway, run squid or whatever you want to=
capture your clients' traffic and filter them, then the box users the DSL=20
router for gateway
	- disadvantages: if your kids are smart they will just change their gatewa=
so that it`s not the box, but the DSL router and override your filtering

2) Same as above, but say DSL`s home ip is you give the box=20, then give the box another ip (alias) and tell the dhc=
on the box to give ip adresses from the network to the client.=
The idea is to use 2 networks, one box <-> clients, the other for dsl route=
<-> box
	- disadvantages: again if your kids are smart they`ll just set themselves=
some static ip from the dsl router`s network and browse. They just have to=
figure out router`s ip and network :) as in the above case

3) Box with 2 NICs and wireless NIC
	- disable dsl router`s wireless NIC
	- connect dsl router to NIC1 on the box
	- connect NIC2 to home net
	- setup the box wireless as Access Point
	- bridge NIC2 and the wireless NIC on the box
	- run your filter

4) Forget about the DSL router. Box with wireless NIC, 1 NIC for home net, =
NIC for the DSL
	- same as above, just have to tell your box how to connect to your ISP
