Normally, I'm a Mac kind of guy, but I've recently picked up a PC and a
couple of ethernet cards to use as an IPNAT box between a cable modem
and a small (~6 hosts) local network. I have a couple of questions:
The PC is a Gateway 2000 486/33. Does it have enough horsepower to
handle the job?
I need help identifying the ethernet cards. They have AAUI/coax/RJ-45
connectors, and the only ID I can find on them is a FCC registration
(HEDEN1650) and a barcode on the back which has the string UE1650 on it.
I see no jumpers on them, so I'll probably need software to configure
them. Any idea what software and where to find it?
Thanks for any help,
