Do any of you guys have any ideas on how to fool a router into allowing me to connect multiple systems through a regular (MSN - ugh) internet connection? This is a temporary thing, but still worth the attempt for the few months it may be used in this manner. I haven't tried much as of yet, but my initial setup using PPPoE didn't work, although I didn't tweak anything at all. Any ideas welcome. Thanks.

i dont know of any router that will share a dial up connection. and no there is no way to trick it into using an external modem.

What if I use XP internet connection sharing with the router in place?

if your going to use another computer to share the modem connection what are you going to do with the router?

There are 3 systems, which to my knowledge requires a switch. The router is acting as a switch for now, until the not-too-distant broadband upgrade. I didn't want to buy a switch now, then a router 3 months from now, so I got a router with a built-in switch and hoped for the best.
