In our area (Colorado Springs) USWest has us setup the DSL as a bridge, not
a router and I get my IP address from my ISP's DHCP server. Basically, I use
IPX/SPX for the LAN and TCP/IP and the dynamic IP from the DHCP for
everything else.

Also, I have a non-standard config in that I have my DSL router/bridge going
into my hub and my other three machines in the hub as well.

As far as "normal" config of computer with eth going to the DSL directly, I
can't comment as I never set it up in that manner.
