Hi Rogelio
There is / was a project called something like the CD router project. It would 
turn an old PC with all the PCI slots filled with NIC's and a CD ROM drive 
into a router. Don't know if its still around and I'm not on line at the 
moment to have a look. I'm almost sure I have a copy on CD at home some 
where, if you want let me know and I will have a look for it.
