View Full Version : Fast Internet

I have just finished networking 3 pc's in our office . They run W2000 pro. I am using an 8 port hub. Now we are looking at fast internet. I am planning on using a Dynalink RTA020 external ADSL modem with the ethernet cable from that going direct into the uplink port on the hub. Then use Jetstream. The 3 workstations have McAfee 6.0 newly installed on them. Any potential problems with this combo?

I do just that with an Alcatel Speed Touch Pro ADSL router, ethernet into uplink port. Network 4 PCs and printer

I also run McAfee 6

Router is set for NAT (network address translation), so effectively hides my machine IP addresses, no known problems of hacking (yet..)

GRC.com reports all ports as stealth.

Works well, seamless internet/email access from any machine

GRRR...

I would eat my own computer to get broadband...

Any idea when it's coming to rural Nelson?
