I used SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm--a newere version has been released) on my NT server before getting a router, and it worked well. However, I have an external cable MODEM. Larry

If you've got a router you're all set. Just plug everything in. If you've only got a hub you need a router too for sharing. The router will use the IP address you get from your ISP and assign IP addresses to your two computers. Just plug the hub into the router and away you go. Works great whether you have PPoE or static IP. If you do buy a router and have PPoE, make sure you get one that supports PPoE so you don't have to reconnect.
