Works fine through my hardware Cisco ADSL Router and Ethernet thru my
USWest Megabit ADSL conenction to the Internet. I'm pretty sure I've
heard of other people here going through Vicom's software routers that
let you share one Internet connection/IP address with multiple machines
thru DHCP or NAT but havne't tried that myself (I have two IP addresess,
one for my Info-Newt server machine and one for my normal use. $8/mo
extra for the second IP address)
