Hi, i am trying to setup my small net in home but all this time i ended up with nothing. Basically i just got a 512 adsl with a simple modem and want to share it with the other pcs in the house. I have also an old router that has been used in the past to share my old connection (cable from ntl last year). Now i cant figure out how to setup everything so it works. basically it looks like: adsl modem (usb modem without any rj45 ports, just a usb) | | main pc (connected to uplink port on router) | | router | \ `\ | \ ``\ | \ ``\ pc1 pc2 pc3 This is it. i know its not the best setup but i cant afford at the moment any other hardware and i would really appreaciate if someone could show me how the ip allocation would be for this setup. i tried changing the gateways, using the dchp from the router, and all types of addressing. any help would be really appreaciated. thanks!
