Confirm comment report request

Like Mart I am using a DLink router (a 601 IIRC) along with the cable modem supplied by my broadband ISP. At the time I was making my decision DHCP was not yet available for RISC OS. I considered using my PC as a server but did not like the idea of having to have the PC booted up to access the Net via my Risc PC. Consideration was also given to setting up an old Pentium PC as a router using Smoothwall but a small dedicated hardware router seemed a more elegant solution. I admit that the advantage of a proxy did not occure to me at the time.
