If so, you could use the same setup as you were using with the Linksys. Turning on or off NAT should not be a problem, because that is normally only between the WAN port the the rest of the network. It should have no affect on the machines connected on the LAN side in this case. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
