I have successfully shared my @Home cable internet connection using Win98 SE. Now a friend wants me to set it up for him for his DSL internet connection.

I thought I read something where it is a bit different for DSL. Does anyone have this setup and it is straightforward or might there be additional steps out of the ordinary to get it working.

With @Home cable internet I needed to use 2 NIC's on the ICS server machine. I just happened to have two different NIC's (a Netgear TP FA310 and a Realtec combo card). One NIC is connected to the Cable modem and the other to a 4 port Netgear hub for the internal network.

My friend has two identical NIC's for his ICS host PC (3COM 3C905-C combo cards). I understand that this may be a bit of a configuration challenge getting Windoze to recognize both cards since they are identical.

Any suggestions?
