When you say router - do you mean one of those webramp type things? A little
beige box int he cornerAs far as I know they have a Web admin control site -
go to the Ip address in your browser. As for the othr machines: does this
router handle DHCP? If so, no further config is required for your other
machines but if it doesnt, make sure all the machines have the gateway and
dns server configured, a unique IP address, the same subnet etc.

Ok, so here's the thing:
I have a Linux network at work (school). I installed it over the summer and
everything works just fine. I didn't set up the net connection at the time,
'cos I didn't have to. Now I do!
I have two choices - an ISDN modem or a Router.
The server has an ISDN TA installed but I haven't configured it yet, so the
router is the option.
The router has it's own IP address (192.168.10.50) and I can telnet to it
from a test pc - I figured that I would configure one pc first.
I configured the test pc's net connection to use the local lan (it's a
windows pc) and I set the gateway to the IP address of the router.
Problem is, when I try to connect to the net, I get diddly squat.
I've obviously forgotten something here. It worked fine when I used a Novell
network last year - I just connected in the router and away we went.
Any help with this problem would be appreciated 'cos I have a bunch of
"little old ladies" (apologies to any little old ladies who are ILUG
members!)in the local retirement group breathing down my neck. They come in
once a week to use the pc's after school and they want to use the internet.
