SHaring internet connection


- I have a local network, connected with a Linksys wrt54g router

- I have Linux and windows machine on this network

- I have a speedtouch usb adsl modem

-> Problem: the router has only ethernet PORT for adsl connection.

-> SOlution: Connect a linux machine directly to the internet thanks to the usb modem, and share the connection with the other machine through the network (via the router)....
But How configure my linux machine (connected to the internet) and the other clients (under windows and linux) to give them access to the internet ?

Note: I can give static IP to the machine on the network.

Anyone have some idea or other solutions??

Thanks a lot for your help !
