At one of my jobs they had a MacOS 9 box with that router software (I 
guess) on it, and every morning arriving at the office, someone would 
have to reboot the firewall before we could access the internet.

Later we replaced it with a FreeBSD router/dns/mail server. Got it 
working, put it on a UPS, then put it the phone closet and forgot about 
it.

But all the suggestions on this thread are good ones. Just to reiterate 
one thing: if you have Windows 2000 or higher, or Mac OS X, then you 
have "internet connection sharing" as an OS feature.
