OKay...You need to give deatiled specs on how your home network is set up. i.e. what hardware do you have (are you using a router, bridge, etc.) what type of connection do you have (xDSL, CableMODEM, t1, t3, ISDN, etc.) What operationg systems do you have? how do you log in to your ISP (constant on, PPoE, software layer, etc.)
there are too many varibles and it would take some of us the better half of a day to list everything!
Watch out for evil Terra-Tron; He Does not like you!
