Thanx for replying
here are the settings i have used
at the moment I have disabled WEP on my network as the chances of anyone getting in are fairly remote I can't and i'm in the same room
I have set TCP/IP to obtain an IP address automatically
Ditto for DNS.
In the advanced settings for IP address the box has DHCP Enabled and auto metric box is ticked
Under the DNS tab append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes button is selected
Register this connection’s address in DNS box is ticked
Under WINS tab Enable LMHOSTS lookup is ticked and Enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP is selected
Optional settings are TCP/IP filtering permit all.
Router settings, well some at least
Internet connection type is PPPoE, (I actually use PPPoATM LLC (RFC2364) when I connect via the modem but I spoke to my ISP and he told me to use PPPoE)
Connect on demand is selected
I have enabled MAC address clone and have set my kit to act as a router (as opposed to a gateway) and have set dynamic routing to BOTH.
web access server is set to HTTP
As a ps I have just recieved an alert on Norton. details are as follows

karoo is my ISP it looks like it is trying to send my router an IP and it is being blocked by NIS
