What I have is a PC with a network card and a crossover cable which I thought would work for the Iliad - but it doesn't. Spent all day tinkering with it, can't get it to work.

Does anybody here have the same setup and it's working?
The problem is that the iliad NEEDS a DHCP server. You'll have to install a dhcp server in your machine to make it work.

And then, you have to configure the PC to do NAT/Masquerading, or install a proxy server if it's easier for you.

Help!
I think that with the two things above, it should work (I used ethernet, a dhcp server and masquerading rules for mine; at first I had problems because I didn't had a dhcp server running but after I configured dhcpd, it worked).
