    My buddy just gave me a B/W PowerMac G3 with a Sonnet Tech G4 1GHz upgrade kit and OS X 10.4.10.

    I've been wanting to setup a proxy to bypass the content filters on the WiFi networks I find on the road. For instance, I can't go to the iPhone Dev Team website with the network I'm currently on.

    Do the parts exist to also turn it into a Gigabit +Draft N router? It would sure be nice to kill two birds with one stone.

    I don't know anything about setting all of this up, how would I go about it?

    Thanks!

    You could install a couple of Gigabit Ethernet Cards in there and use a program like IPNetRouter to use your PowerMac G3 as a router.
