I can't seem to find the Netgear model you recommended on my city.
This one seems to be a good option for me:
You-Link 54Mbps 802.11g Wireless G Router LAN
- Static & Dynamic Routing With TCP/IP VPN
- pass-through(IPS ec,L2TP),NAT,PPTP
- PPPoe,DHCP(client & server)
- Function: Automatically detects your ISP type,Exposed
Host(DMZ),MACaddress authentication,URL content filtering,logs and
e-mail alerts of Internet activity
- Modulation Type:PFDM with BPSK,QPSK,16QAM,64QAM,DBPSK,DQPSK,CCK
- Firewall:Stateful packet Inspection(SPI) and Dos attack protection
- Encryption:64,128-bit WEP Encryption,WEP-PSK
I suppose its features are enough for this sharing operation. Is there
any other important specification?

That's the case of my ppp connection.
Thanks for helping.
