It is my opinion that setting up a $50-75 router (if purchased new.
Cheaper used, and often can be found free from people upgrade to
wireless or people upgrading to even faster wireless) is simpler than
setting up winpoet.  It is also my opinion that such a device removes
most of the need for those stupid windows firewall packages (although
the NAT doesn't block outgoing connections usually, while the windows
firewall programs usually do).
