*** I've given some thought to that. First I thought it would be easy
for people to have two Ethernet ports, one to plug to the ISP modem, and
another to plug to the LAN router. Two RJ45 ports are noted as a
requirement in the Dowse paper.
When I witnessed the success of the Anonabox campaign, I attributed it
partly to the fact it has 2 Ethernet ports: it's conceptually
straightforward for people to "see" a bridge with two "entries".
But now I think it would be better to explain why it's not necessary,
and how the physical world and the digital world work on two different
levels of reality. The mindshift required to conceptualize a network
bridge with a single network interface card is about the same as to
understand that the aggregate of rational micro-decisions can generate
Given a NIC with Gigabit capacity, is there an actual use-case where 2
NICs are required instead of one?
