ICS, who's using it

For Windows clients that is. Anyone have an experiences w/ this for their small home networks in lieu of a Cable/DSL router w/ DHCP running. Capabilites look to be the same as 256 client DHCP on most small network routers. If you do use ICS do you have a nice ICS host computer? Are you running ICF with it? Is ICF worth a shit?

Thanks for your input

I never used ICS, because I used to always be in dial-up. Now with broadband, I just picked up a wireless router and use that.

ICF is a decent firewall, but certainly not the best. I'd use something like Zone Alarm, or similar. I was using Zone Alarm for a while, but it kept dropping my connection for no appearent reason, and I'd have to shut down ZA to get my connection back. It was kinda fucked. I don't know if it was ZA'a fault, or something I had running that was conflicting with it, because a few of my friends also use ZA, and don't have any problems with it.

Zone Alarm can be found here: http://www.zonelabs.com

ICS sucks, its decent for home networks, but dont even think about using it for more then 5 comptuers if you are worried about security at all.
