    I was running a peer-to-peer network of three computers and sharing a dial-up connection. I just installed a router and changed to an infrastructure setup. Now, no matter what I try, I can't get the other computers to get to the internet.
    I know, the obvious fix is to get DSL, but I'm too cheap.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I would guess the DHCP in the router is assigning all the machines to use it as the default gateway... but since you're not really using it as a router (I assume you're srtilling unsing dial-up via one of the machines)-- this would make things sticky.

    Bill Cowmeadow,

    You are going to have to have the machine with the modem be a proxy to the internet for the other machines on your work group. If you do a search on the use of proxies in a work group environment you will probably find instructions on how to set one up.
    Regards,
