My ISP has said that I can't use a router to share my new DSL connection? Is this just an honor system or will it actually be blocked – I thought a router allowed all the users to share the same IP? The more I learn the more confused I get. Does this mean that I have to build a traditional ethernet network and have one computer set as the internet server? What’s the cheapest way around this problem - its for my house at college - aesthetics are of little concern.
