Can you tell us a little about the setup? Is the WAN (internet) side using
DHCP or are you configuring it manually? Is the router setup to serve IP
addresses (DHCP) to your workstations or did you elect to use static IP's on
the LAN side?
Once we have some of that info we can start directing you on configuration,
firewalling, DMZ's and port forwarding. Bet you can't wait. ;-)
