    I am using a Linksys 4-port Gateway to connect a cable modem, a windows 2000 server, and two win98 machines. So far all the computer can access the Internet simultaneously, but I would like them to talk to each other as well. I'm confused about how to put a LAN with WAN on the Linksys Gateway. I noticed in the Linksys manual it mentioned something about NAT for two networks, but it doesn't elaborate on that. Any hint??

    The router should have come with a default IP address. Probably 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. If you enter the correct IP address in your browser, you should reach the router's login page. You'll have the option to use DHCP so the clients get the IP address from the router. In fact, you may already have it setup like that or are they getting an IP from the 2000 server? What are the IP's of each computer?
    Assuming that's all setup properly, make sure all computers are in the same Workgroup. You can install Netbeui also to make things a little easier.
