    If u got cable, then you definately don't want it connected directly to your computer (especially if your using Windows)...

    Two options:

    1 Gateway server (I think this is the best option because you can mix/match lot's of security methods. The only thing is you need to be somewhat familiar with *NIX or you must at least be willing to learn). If you choose to do it this way, PM me and I'll send you some links that will take you through it step-by-step.

    2 Router.

    Whether you have a single box or whether you have a LAN, you need something to protect you from the big, bad, fast internet.

    To find out more, read this post... Hope this helps.

    Many will ask, \"Where do you want to go today?\" because they\'re still scratching for ideas.

    With *NIX, there\'s already a way. The sum of us just need roadmaps to get there.

    Well, I plug the ethernet cable into the Network Interface Card (NIC).

    To be more serious:
    Cable Modem > Router > Computer.
