More than willing. I love simple solutions. Given I know /nothing/ about networking I just thought I'd check in here first.
And spending money on stuff that doesn't do Free software annoys me (*cough* nvidia *cough*).
The box of the Netgear stuff had all sorts of drivel on it like "95 98 NT 2000 XP"
So, if i understand correctly the gateway/router will authenticate itself with Telstra? No need for BPA Login on the machines trying to access the net? BPA login or whatever gets installed on the gateway router? Or do the boxes trying to access the net authenticate with the provider individually?
Or am I displaying the profoundity of my ignorance in an unattractive fashion?
Thanks to Bret, Dazza & SLUG.
