Should do, you may need to change what connection it uses on the gateway and on the other one, the default will be the dial-up unless you change it.
You shouldn't need ay more software, correct me if I'm wrong, but I've not had to so far.

Probably too late, but using an ADSL modem/router is much more secure, plus easy to set up.

Havent had to use an internal ADSL, but should follow the line of the 56k, where the ADSL is another network adapter via a gateway from your network.

I went through setting up a broadband connection, only to find with the router, that once it was on the network all PCs found it without being told (Win XP).

All I had to do was stop them from using dial-up (which they try and do if an address does not exist, they think it will then be available from dialup)
