There are several products that are out in the market now that we need to take a look at in a followup article, some companies that come to mind include SMC, Netgear, and Farallon. Also, some of the companies in the roundup now have some plans up their sleeves and intend on continuing to improve on current products, or intend on releasing new products.

I anticipate the followup to this article to be ready in about 3-4 more weeks, but if I can get the products in sooner, I can rush job the article for all of you (I've been receiving a lot of email about the Netgear 314)

DSL is not yet available in my area, but when it gets here
I plan to be ready for it. My question has to do with the
providers that state you must use their routers/modems. Is
this true, or are they just putting out mis-information to
line their pockets?
I already have a home LAN system installed and plan to hook
DSL into it for multi-computer access.
Any insight to this would be highly appreciated.

I have heard from a few people that they have gotten routers to work with their DSL providers, but at home, I tested this with a few routers and it did NOT work without the modem provided by my ISP.

The definition of "router" should allow their standalone use, though.

Is there PPPOE support in any of these routers? Does the Linksys have pppoe support?

By the way, setting up a linux router, despite a steep learning curve, is a good cheap alternative. a computer (486) can be acquired for vertually nothing (-) and is the cheapest solution.

Yes the LinkSYS has pppoe support.Its so easy to setup its a joke.

PPPoE is supported here,as it should by any router.

Need help with re-configuring a stand-alone Win95 machine with DSL modem (PPP incl.). Need to add it to a network using Linksys 4-port DSL router.

1. Should I completely remove all Networking software such as the AOL dial-up and DSL PPOet stuff - and then re-install for the network card first? Currently, Windows won't let me add another TCP/IP protocol for the Network adapter. (existing bind issue?)

2. What software is actually required when the DSL model is connected to the WAN port on the router? Does the DSL software need to be installed on all PCs too?

thanks,
lost

I am looking for a any ADSL Routers that support proxy servers of the ISP; meaning the WAN setting should have place to type a proxy server and port information of the ISP. Normaly most of the standard Router comes with the following fields only username, password, IP and DNS
