Yes, you can do it the way you're expecting to. I've run a router on the
netduo for quite a few months and was very happy with the results.
You need to get your hands on the hardware and once you have all relevant
network interfaces up and running ok, you just create a few rules with
iptables (there are quite a few tutorials on the internet) and the little
thing will just fly :-)
