Nokia IP330 Smoothwall Express 3.0 in practice

Just a quick note to say this firewall is working perfectly.  Smoothwall is an outstanding product.  I have both public and private wireless networks at my office.  The public wireless was sitting behind a Linksys router.  I configured the Linksys as an access point (turned off DHCP, plugged into a switch port rather than the WAN port, etc) and put the IP330 between it and the Time Warner cable modem.

I have nothing allowed inbound and opened only http/s, dns, pop3 and smtp outbound.  The IP330 is acting as the DHCP server and is forwarding DNS.  I couldn't ask for a better solution ... and it's free -- double bonus.
