from the ADSL you will need a router, not a switch and enable dhcp either on the router or the server. if not, you will not be able to hook up more than one PC. you could go static ip, but that will make it harder to administer, unless you dont plan on growing the network....

he can use a switch if his adsl modem is a intergrated router ... many are

If you want security put a ISA server between router and switch

ive had limited experience with ADSL, although that is what we have here at the school. Obviously, we wouldnt want their router since it would bog down internet traffic. So we have a regular modem that is a passthrough switch.

However, ive never known of any ISP handing out integrated routers for home users, cause they would rather charge extra money per PC connected to the internet.

Bell / Sympatico / Aliant (Canada's largest ISP) now equips all their ADSL modem's with routing features. The main reason they do this is so people can enter their PPPOE infomation in the modem / router for a true always on connection, as well as being behind a router gives you extra security.

However if you tell them that you want more than one computer, they'll try to sell you some unstable 300$ peice of crap wireless router.

if you plug your computer into modem and get a 192.168.x, 10.x, 172.16.x then you dont need a router.

you only need a single dhcp server
