Ellen's House Warming
It was Ellen's house warming party this evening. Techically, I suppose, it still is. I'm in her living room taking advantage of her wireless internet access, which I got working for her earlier in the evening. I've put photos up on my gallery.
She has a Speedtouch 580 - an ADSL router with wireless access point built in. The only issue is that she doesn't have ADSL any more - she has cable from Telewest. Because the external connection is no longer on the PPP interface, I had to enable NAPT for the IP assigned by the cable modem. It took me a while to work out how to get the router to remember to leave NAPT enabled on the external IP. You can turn on NAPT on an existing IP, but there's no way of actually saving that. I found that what I had to do was create a new DHCP client entry and apply NAPT to that.
