Small Q if anyone knows the answer, would be appreciated.

I'm in the process of getting the gear together (Router etc) to Broadband
connect our SARPCs faster to the big bad world.

One machine is running under RO Select 4.39 so that should be okay, the
other is still on RO 4.02.
Are there any problems with 4.02 in this area that might cause me problems?

Cheers
Dave S

PS: Both machines have Unipods, so that's not an issue.

Not necessarily, no. If it is happy enough with networking generally, then
it should work fine.

My A3000 works happily enough on my router, so 4.02 shouldn't be a
problem.

No, the only limitation is you won't be able to use DHCP but that is not a
limiting factor for most people.

As your using a router I would suggest you use static ip addressing
on your machines, then you will know what to put in the Hosts file in the
hosts part of Internet configure (Less bother Dave).

No problems whatever.  But note that the arrangement of Configure
-> Network is slightly different in these versions.

This is a networking question, please use the appropriate group which is
csa.networking. Followups set.

Just make sure the router is set up with NAT enabled, so you dont expose any
services running on your local machines such as Samba filesharing and HTTP
server. The firewall in Select can be used to prevent computers outside the
local network accessing these services, but 4.02 cannot do this.

1. RCI announce broadband/network price cuts

As a result of a healthy Wakefield show, we have been able to work with
our suppliers to bring down prices on our ADSL and cable broadband
gear.  The price reductions are quite significant in most cases,
cutting the cost of broadband for RISC OS users!

The new "all inclusive" prices are as follows:

  4 port ADSL router - 119ukp
    This product includes the ADSL modem functionality, and has four
    high speed network ports for connecting your computer(s).  The
    unit offers hardware firewall protection, and comes with RISC OS
    software, special manuals covering RISC OS and Windows installation,
    full technical support etc.  

  4 port Cable router - 119ukp
    Similar feature set to the ADSL unit above, but designed for use
    with cable modems (eg. NTL and Telewest).  Again, includes hardware
    firewall protection, software, manuals, support etc.

  4 port modem/cable router with printer port - 169ukp
    Similar feature set to above, but with added serial port for modem
    or ISDN.  The printer port allows printer sharing.  Includes our
    Network Printer Driver software, as well as all the usual bits and
    bobs!

  ADSL-in-a-box kit - 230ukp
    Our "in a box" kits comprise of the router, cables, RiscPC Net100
    network card, a high speed Windows/PC network card, cables,
    manuals covering both RISC OS and windows, file sharing, internet
    sharing etc., technical support and so on.

  Network-in-a-box kit - 260ukp
    This kit uses the 4 port modem/cable router with printer port as
    its heart, so includes the printer port and extra software.  
    Suitable for cable broadband or modem/ISDN.

Please note that all prices *INCLUDE* VAT and UK postage/packing.
We provide comprehensive documentation and support at no extra charge,
as well as RISC OS software with all units, so that they can be used
on both RISC OS and Windows (as well as Mac/Linux).
