You want to use Windows as a NAT/Masq firewall and gateway, huh?

It's times like this that I recall my grandfather's last words.

Unhappy very true

Good point but it's his computer and his ADSL.

We're working on a seporate server with

2 Network Cards
1 Alcatel USB adsl modem
Mandrake 8

- then we can both of us can connect with

but it's proving very very hard.

Got to

1) get USB working
2) get third party Alcatel drivers working
3) get netconnection working
4) share this internet connection with my computer (gateway)
5) share this internet connection with my brothers computer also.

wiSH mE lUcK!
