RH7 behind Windows-based NAT

I also have cable, but am using the Netgear RT314 Cable/DSL Router / 4 Port 
10/100 switch.  It provides NAT and all masquerading for your network.  I 
installed Red Hat 7.1 last night and using DHCP, was able to immediately 
surf the internet right after the install.
The router I spoke of is presently on sale at CompUSA for $79 after rebate.  
I have not had any problems with the router and have a few machines on it 
running everything from Windows 2000 to Linux and soon, Solaris.  You may 
want to check it out.
