No, it's never too late . . . (who said it ? )

I haven't made up my mind for any ISDN/TDSL solution yet.
In past it always turned out to be useful & secure to collect essential
information first
before taking decisive steps. So when I visit a market for computer
I'll be able to watch out for any of the devices that you've listed below:

Yeah, but if I understand right this means that I have to turn machine into

a DSL router which I can't do with a Win 3.11, right ?

yep, 3Coms are very reliable : )

BTW, you say you pulled this as an unanswered question out of the
archive. Did you refer to your personal archive, or is there an actual
address on the net ?
All I get is the Calmira_tips mailing list.
(Maybe I can contribute to some 'old' unanswered questions, too ; )
