I have a cisco 2514 series router, DSL, a win98 machine, nt (server) machine and a 2k machine. I'd like to run the dsl into the router and give Internet access to the other machines. My IP address from the provider is DHCP (not static). So my question is what would be the best way to configure this. Should I run the dsl line into the router or run the dsl into my win 98 machine and use it as a gateway? Any detailed advice would be helpful Thanks

The 2514 is pretty expensive for what you are trying to do with it, but it should work. Checkout the bridging and PPPoE options. Nomally all you need is a 800 series Cisco or a cheaper brand, such as Linksys, Netgear, Asante or NEXLAND.

I know it's overkill, but I bought two of the routers to help pass the CCNA exam. Anymore advice. Thanks

Did you checkout the bridging and PPPoE options as I suggested and did it help?
