    ok i use Dialup i will admit it. and i sometimes have to share it (i know what your thinking)
    so my question is after i set up a windows box to nat the dial in access
    and change my router to (because windows is greedy and takes .1) what would i have to do to configure my router to asighn dhcp to all my other boxes so that they can access the net without messing with setting each gateway.

    the reason i have to share is becasue i have computers in multiple rooms and i dont have phone lines in some of those rooms.
    so getting another modem is not going to help

    and also dont say "quit being cheap and get cable" because my closest neighbor with that option is 1/4 mile away through trees.

    any help would be apreciated

    There shouldn't be much that you have to do. DHCP should work automatically. What problem are you actually running into?

    ok when i share the connection with the xp box. and just run staic ips through a switch it works.
    but throw dhcp and that router into the mix and none of them get connectivity to the outside world.

    the router is made to just pop the wan port into a cable modem and work.
    but nobody in their right mind shares dialup right.
    and is there a command to renew the internet side ip of the router
    ifconfig? dhclient?
    or whatever

    im fairly good with linux. but i dont have 80 bucks now to blow on a hardmodem or i would share with a linux box and call it good. but i can try to configure this router as long as im broke

    What if, you set your dialup PC to (So it won't enable it's DHCP server) and turn on ICS.
    Your router should be and set as your gateway in your router WAN configuration
    You will have to use your router IP address as default Gateway in all your other PCs.

    I do not really understand what you want to do. If you use ICS what do you need the router for? If you let the router connect to the internet what do you need ICS for?
    If you use ICS you do not need a router in your LAN. Simply set up a static route in your WRT which routes all traffic to your ICS PC:
    Destination =
    Mask =
    Gateway =

    Just my 2 €-cents.

    i cant get the windows crappy ics dhcp to serve my wireless clients.
    also i find that if i could get the router to assign ip's that i wouldnt have to manually configure the gateways. becasue windows won't (not cant) do it for me
