Some manufactures, such as Apple AirPort Extreme, also make dialup gateways with dialup modem PPP and firewall capabilities.
Actually the Airport Extreme doesn't do firewalling.
It does PNAT and port forwarding to an inside IP address with remapping. This matches with the vernacular use of the term "firewall".
If you say so...
Not as far as I can tell. But being a base station, it can act as a switch. In this mode, it's completely transparent (unless you count rate limiting multicasts...). And even with NAT there is no way to filter outgoing traffic.I've not tried to get it to route a subnet; I'm not even sure if it's possible.
