If you go with SWB's DSL you should have no problems hooking the DSL modem
directly to your hub. Make sure to get a DSL modem that has ethernet connections
compatible with your current hub. I don't know if SWB allows multiple ip
addresses on one DSL line, you will have to check with them on this. If they
don't then you will need to run something like IPNetRouter. This will provide
address translation and routing for all of your computers. SWB will only "see"
one address coming from you, but all of your computers will have access to the
internet thru your DSL line.

You will not need extra phone lines. One or both of your current lines will be
converted to DSL. Your normal voice traffic will be carried over the DSL lines
and you won't notice any difference in your normal phone service. Also, you will
be able to use the phones at the same time that you are connected to the
internet (which will be all the time).
