    I currently have 2 PCs (an XP Home and a W98SE) connected via a 10Mb hub. The XP machine has set up to do ICS.
    I have Panda anti-virus on the XP machine.

    Yesterday (hooray) my exhange was enabled for ADSL.

    Should I ..
    1) get an ADSL PCI card modem and continue with ICS
    2) get an ADSL USB modem and continue with ICS
    3) Get and ADSL router and connect it to the hub .If so what do I have to set up the XP and W98 pc's again?
    4) Splash out and get a combined ADSL router and hub thingy?

    thanks.

    Netgear DG814UK ADSL Modem Router from http://www.dslsource.co.uk

    thats what I use for my home networks internet
    Its good I like it. Personally a modem/router or something like that is better than having to do ICS imo.

    Yeah I recommend a router too. Either get one with a built-in modem (like the one above) or a regular router plus a modem.
