A router which T-com includes in new DSL packages, at least in Germany.
Quite good it seems, supports WPA2.

problems ;-) )
Does the router need to know about the LAN IP?
Currently I cannot access the router setup via http://192.168.2.1 from

Say, what about the desktop's IP ? Will DHCP provide that automatically?
(not sure DHCP is running).
I remember managing this one with a single cable between a desktop and
laptop. I had to provide some IP and subnet info etc.
On the latop side Knetworkmanager handles IPs via DHCP, so you have to
comment out all info except "lo" in /etc/network/interfaces.
I only need the laptop to see the desktop, that way I can access the
various disks and also do backups.
