        <shrug> I've not delved heavily into the OSI layer model. As far as the
features go, the P312 has been released for production so you can look for
yourself at:

        Yes! It's been working just fine for over three months. I was in the Beta
program for the P312 prior to its public release. I chose it specifically
because of its extensive NAT capabilities.

        In fact, as evidenced by this (and earlier) posts, I brought our mail
server online this past week. It's 1-1 NATted through the Zyxel as well.
The server itself carries a reserved 192.168.x.x address, and that's mapped
1-1 to the outside world with a 63.226.233.x address out of my assigned group.

        Then I'd say we've got some -really- smart engineers at Zyxel. ;-)

        Actually, the 'hub' is a smart 10/100 switch.

        Happy cogitating.
