Me too. My computers have better things to do than low-level packet routing.
As Ken noted, the price of routers has really dropped, and to me, that's the
Right Way. I personally use and recommend the Bay Networks Netgear RT328...
for $289 from Micro Warehouse, it does everything you could possibly want,
has free 24x7 support, and free software updates for life.
