We are using the same machine in Jamaica in two schools. Given that we
don't anticipate WAN (Internet) traffic to be a lot ('net connection
is spotty), we switched the nics (using xs-swapnics script) so that
the built-in Ethernet port became the LAN port, going out to a switch
and out to PoE access points (Ubiquiti Picostations
http://www.ubnt.com/picostation). We are using the USB-to-Ethernet
dongle (the ilovemyxo one) as the WAN side.
