I found a link to a NIC that is a wifi NIC with a built in NAT router. It seems like a neat idea but how practical is it? This appears to be an inexpensive way to intergate a router w\NAT and a software firewall (like ZA, Outpost, SyGate,..).
Have you used one? What problems can to you see? Do you know of any studies or reconized reviews?

Several reviews that I found - all seem to be fairly old:

Seems like a nice choice to eliminate the clutter of a router - but the price that I saw doesn't seem all that different from a conventional wireless router. I've got no clue about the firmware or the customizability of the router's settings.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I was thinking about a windows 2000 Pro box with just the nic\router and SyGate 5.6. I sorta want to run a squid proxy to filter site (just for fun).
