I use exactly this type of setup at home. My desktop machines and my
Newton all have various flavors of Ethernet adapters which are
connected via 10BaseT to a 5-port hub, which is in turn connected to
a Zyxel Prestige 641 DSL router. In the Newt I use either the
Farallon card (now no longer sold) or a 3COM Megahertz Xjack Ethernet
LAN card plus Victor's driver.

If you have any other questions about how I achieved this please feel
free to ask.
