I know this sounds like a stupid question but i have a query concerning Zen ADSL. I don't know if i should choose 1IP address or 8 IP Adresses. I will be using a router not a modem and will be linking a couple more computers on a home network via the router and network cards.
Im not sure which option to choose, pleasse sould someone advise me on the options.

Thanks in advance

If you're using a router all you need is one IP address, there is no need for anymore.

Enjoy your ADSL experience! :D

I have the zen, and they like to give each computer its own personal IP address, although the router's IP is the only one that is seen on the internet.

They are a good company, even though they are slightly higher prices than a lot of companies, the service is great...

Andy999, if you aren't worried about each PC having direct access to the web (and having the associated security risks with this) and your router supports NAT then I would go with the 1 IP option.

If however you want to run any servers on your ADSL then the 8 IP option is probably your better route.

For most home users 1 IP is more than enough and this way, once setup the router can supply net access for many PC's.

thanks for your replies, 1 IP address it is then.

Oh, by the way, Thin White Duke, I will definately enjoy ADSL!
