Would you advise me about what kind of modem or ISDN terminal adapter should I get to put my home Ethernet network of three Macintoshes on the Internet?  What is the most cost-efficient way of connecting to the Internet of more than one computer without buying multiple modems and subscribing to more than one ISP account?

snag a simple 56k modem and get a copy of Surf Doubler from your local mac store. that will let you put 2 machines on a network out through one modem. or you could get vicom internet gateway (by the same company as surf doubler) and put several hundred computers out through one modem but at that point it becomes cheaper to get isdn. from there its your call on how much $ you want to spend on access for 3 computers.

Thanks for your tip on SurfDoubler.  I will check it out.  I suspect that since the modem is connected to only one computer, the latter will have to be on if others want to surf the net.  Do you know if ANY ISDN adapter has Ethernet port and can support the entire local network?  This was my major question, what is the brand of the ISDN adapter should I look for.

Thanks.

Thanx.  In fact I saw quite expensive (about $1500) ISDN adapters with Ethernet from Netopia, but I was thinking about something in a reasonable price range.  Thank you anyway.

Try a brand called Netgear (part of Bay networks?). They have a cheaper router that does go on the Ethernet. Possibly half the price of teh Netopia.

happy surfing
