Build a Linux Router from an Old Laptop

13 Nov, 2019 - 7 minutes
Recently, I found myself in a situation where I needed to quickly replace a broken router. In times like these, you must improvise and think on your feet… The device in question was an old, rusty but trusty IBM ThinkPad T60. This particular machine has a special history for me. I salvaged it from a pile of e-waste at my old job as a PC tech many years ago, and that summer it was my playground for learning Linux ultimately starting the career which I currently enjoy.
