    When he says enable as a router, I believe he means set it up for internet
    connection sharing. Which you should have gone through when installing the
    second NIC, in your pc.

    With this, I believe, that the phone adapter must be configured for NAT
    (Network Address Translation)

    What's meant by installing the second NIC? the 802.11b USB NIC utility
    and driver were installed from a CD. Are you referring to the internal
    ethernet NIC? The ethernet NIC was physically installed prior to the
    802.11b NIC.

    from what I understand in your previous post, the wire less connection goes
    into your PC, to provide the internet, then you have the second non-wireless
    NIC. The non wireless nic is where the crossover cable would plug in, and
    where the internet connection sharing would be setup. Basically I think its
    set up by giving it an internal address (, or something along
    those lines) in the Network properties of the NIC.

    hey, I bought the crossover cable ($14.99 CAD at radioshack), plugged
    everything in, enabled ICS and...nothing. Took a nap, woke up,
    everything works :)

    thanks for the help, guys!

    had I known that it, the crossover cable, was required I would've
    really pushed for them to substitute the regular cable for a crossover
    cable...you might make an argument that the regular cable isn't

    From digital voice, I didn't get a network cable. Network cables aren't
    normally included with things.

    With "things"? I guess they are not normally included with toasters, string
    cheese, or sans-a-belt slacks, no. But a good share of the networking
    hardware I've bought over the years (wireless router, PMCIA ethernet
    adapter, Vonage ATA, etc.) has included them.

    I got one with my Sipura SPA-2000 and with the Grandstream ATA-486 and
    with the Netgear DM602 modem/router and.....

    Yes they are..!


    PS I have a reel of bulk cable and usually crimp my own, but they *are*
    supplied. Usually anyway.

    U are right. I am sorry. I did get one with mine. I just forgot I had
    given it to a friend becuase I have so many. They do not come with copiers
    that can be connected, is what I should have said.
