Hey folks!

Following some previous posts, I've concluded on a strategy for
setting up a home (net connection sharing) network. Thought I'd brush
past u guys once before I shell out the money.

I have three machine:
M1 - running windows and no wireless support
M2 - running windows and with wireless support 802.11 abg
M3 - OpenSuse 10.2 with wireless support 802.11 b

A broadband connection with Motorola SB5100 cable modem
I do not have a static IP
Protocol used is PPPOE

Using this setup:

     |--- M1
   INTERNET === Cable Model ---- Wireless Router -|--- M2

     |--- M3

1. I have an ISP provided login program which I use to connect from
windows machines, from Suse I use rp-pppoe. Would I be able to get all
the 3 machine on the internet at the same time using this mode of

2. Would any additional configuration be necessary on the three machines?

3. The wireless router in picture, could it be a:
        a. D-Link DI - 524 Wireless Access Point Router (approx Rs 2.7K)
        b. Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G (approx Rs 3K)
   Any reviews?

Thanks in advance.
