Yeah, it's the little box in the corner. I connect it to the network with a
BNC cable connection. It has it's own IP address and each pc on the network
has it's own IP address also - I don't use DHCP. I've tried the IP address
of the router in a web browser - no luck there. I can connect to it through
a configuration package on a windows pc though.
I'll try using a different pc tomorrow. The one I was playing with to
configure used to connect to the net separately using an ISDN TA, so maybe
that's screwing things up a bit. I'll stick the Gateway and DNS addresses
int another pc and see how I get on from there.
