You can already connect the C64 to e.g. a Linux box using SLIP.  If you
want, you could add more intelligence to the Linux end of the connection;
it could e.g. filter out broadcast, UDP and ICMP packets.

I think that a simple ad-hoc network is a better idea.  If you want some
more challenge in the implementation, make all nodes equal and have them
automatically detect the network topology and figure out node addresses.
You could add e.g. a PC to that network via a custom interface, if you
want to have a file server or such.
