Maybe you've had a broadband connection for a while, and want to expand, or maybe you're just getting set up. Either way, you may find yourself wanting to hook a couple of computers together
and share that cable modem or xDSL connection, but how will you share the single, dynamic IP address they gave you, and what about security?

Enter, the ZyXEL Prestige Series P310 WAN Router.

The ZyXEL P310 is a unique router with a lot to offer, but has few quirks as well.
It has the ability to allow you to share an internet connection over either xDSL or cable.
It also has a built in hardware firewall, it can assign addresses for the devices on your network, and it can even allow multiple computers to be seen as coming from one place. And just the beginning! All in all, the P310 has some powerful features, but because of that, does suffer from a potentially complex setup.
