Laptop with 2 network ports?

By AdeV73 ·
Does anyone know of such a beast? I'm looking to "downsize" my LAN, in power consumption terms; and I'd like to replace the firewall server with a laptop I don't need a massively powerful machine, any P4 based lappy will do.

Replacing the other servers is no problem, as each only needs 1 NIC; but ISA Server really needs 1 Internet NIC & 1 LAN NIC to function properly.

Laptop vs Router?

Just wondering if a router will meet your needs? But as Mark mentioned a PCMCIA (bus card) would work or a USB nic. I'm not sure what kind of life span is expected from a laptop running 24/7.

Thanks chaps! I added a PCMCIA nic, and it's working fine (albeit not live yet).
