The 'i-stream multi' product is for 'up to four stand-alone'
machines, which might arguably require the Pro.
Although I'm fairly sure that only one user can actually bind
a PPPOE stack to the service at any one time, so that user is
going to have to provide a NAT service to the others anyway.
However, it's demonstrably useless in the case of the 'multi
user, multi PC networked environment' which the enhanced
product is supposedly targetted at.

I don't know what their name was, I was in the middle of
