Hi Guys,

Me again, I'm on site installing this network set-up (initially posted here) and I've arrived at the secure office bit. I now have a bit of a problem... All routers I've been supplied with are ADSL, so there is no option to connect LAN to WAN to add a NAT layer. Is there any way of enforcing something over a LAN to LAN link, or, if that's not an option, can I put another router in the chain, secure this down and daisy chain off of this? Would putting a PC in the chain, connected to the un-secure network and sharing this connection over CAT5 to a router's LAN work?

I know the real answer is to tell the tight bugger he needs to get a normal router for the office side, I was just seeing if there are any interim solutions I could put in place with the limited hardware available.

Thanks, as always for any help or advice you can offer

Danny

There are plenty of Ethernet equipped routers, you shouldn't have to settle for something that doesn't fit your requirements.
