thanks for your replies! The thing is that I need the 3Com router because
othewise, I don't know how to connect to my DSL line (I havent been able to
find any mini-PCI dsl card) so I'll still need to use one of the DSL routers
to get access to the line.

Also, will I be able to easily (or not ver hard) configure all the things
that my home network clients need (as I said, msn transfers, skype, video
conference...)? That's a big deal, because I that "things" doesn't work
network users will refuse the "new strange router" ;)

Thank you ver much.
