I had an ADSL line installed during the week, and it works very nicely
with my FreeBSD server.  I must confess that I didn't use DHCP, I just
picked an IP from the allowable range and NATed packets from my existing

It does have the side effect that my packets are NATed twice (once by my
server and again by the router) but it saves me the hassle of changing my
DNS setup.
