    I am assuming you want to share an Internet connection versus route a larger enterprise network via Linux boxes instead of more expensive router hardware.

    For paid solutions look at http://www.astaro.com/ and http://www.clarkconnect.com/info/
    both are Linux based distributions that are specialized to firewall + route + VPN, etc.

    For Do It Yourself (DIY) solutions, look at Vyatta: http://www.vyatta.com/landing/land1.php?l=178

    For just a router solutions, FreeSCO is worth a look...
    http://www.freesco.org/

    For DIY to the maximum degree, try http://pigtail.net/LRP/index.html

    You don't need any of that stuff. Using an existing Linux system, you can easily configure it to be a router, forwarding packets between the two interfaces, providing DNS and DHCP services.

    Simple stuff, but the point is that the students in freakin' India can learn how to do it themselves rather than try to cheat and sap the answers from the people they're trying to steal the jobs from, not to mention the historical evidence of these ungrateful folks never leaving feedback.....
