My father owns an automotive parts business. It is a national chain. The business system that they use likes to control everything computer oriented. This includes the DSL line which, my father pays for out of his pocket. They have horded the network firmware and set passwords and firewalls up throughout their system. It allows for very minimal internet access. My father does have a PC in his back office that is not part of this network. He would like to use his DSL line that he is paying for, for other things besides the company dialing in remotely to make price or inventory updates. He requested they help him do this and they did. Sort of. The PC is now bound by their same firewall system and blockers. It sucks. I know just about enough about computers to know everything except how to help with this problem. Can I use a hub, switch or router, to share the DSL line, so that both computer systems can access it and not be affected by each other? Or not change the IP address of the computers on the business system network?
Thank you for any help you can give
