heh, glad I made sense to at least one person ;)

I turned everything off, plugged things in like so:

internet-->router-->wireless-->asus network adapter-->hub

hub-->PAP2-->telephone

hub-->eth0

on reboot I got messages about 100% packet loss.  I'm looking over
/var/log/messages and dmesg, can't find those error messages.  anyhow,
as I understand there's a problem with MAC address's which prevents
that setup.  (ultimately, this'd be nice, for now I'm just looking for
a phone.)

I need a DHCP router on the downstream, meaning between eth0 and eth1
to provide the masquerading?
