From MacFixit:Comcast Gunning for NAT

From MacFixit:

Comcast Gunning for NAT Users? Meanwhile, a posting on Slashdot states: “A co-worker of mine resigned today. His new job at Comcast: Hunting down ‘abusers’ of the service. More specifically, anyone using NAT to connect more than one computer to their cable modem to get Internet access… Comcast has an entire department dedicated to eradicating NAT users from their network.” There are numerous replies, mostly exploring the extent to which Comcast is even able to detect NAT use.

I doubt if they can detect whether someone is using a NAT device, such as a LinkSys router, as I’m using to connect my iBook, G3, and G4 to my DSL connection.
