Like the original poster, you assume that I was comparing an ISDN router
against a Linux box as a router. I (perhaps mistakenly) assumed that as
this was a Linux list, people had Linux boxes. I've done this both ways
and there's no doubt that the little box is easier, at least if you're not
using a recent SuSE. If you don't want the Linux box for some other reason
(e.g. SquidIf or a reasonable firewall) and you just want to connect a few
'doze lusers, by all means buy a Webramp or Zyxel, or even a Cisco if that
ices your cake.
