You dont need a router to make use of the IP no.

Appart from that i'm not entiry sure how you mean to make use of it. You are allready using it if you are online, albeit transparently via connection sharing.

A router could make setting up anything on your network a bit easier but it sertainly not esential.

If using ICS within windows, then you do not need to be concerned with the IPs. ICS will assign them to the other systems as needed.

However, if you have applied for and been granted multiple IP block from +Net, then you can't use this with ICS or a USB modem.

You will need a router for this.

Sorry, I don't understand this comment! (The bit about the USB modem, I mean; fair enough about ICS)

Surely, a USB modem's fine with multiple IP addresses -- the PC it's connected to acts as the router?

Sounds to me though, as if the original poster is using a block of public IP addresses just for the sake of it, rather than having any real need for them.

You can use them with a USB or PCI modem, provided you have the drivers for windows to use them properly.

Windows will only answer to the IP provided at connection, IE , a single IP address, and not any others. ANythign addresssed to a different IP will be treated just the same way traffic on a LAN is.
