We use a router (Netopia) which includes NAT to hide our internal
network.

Our ISP has not set any limits on the number of machines within our
internal network.  We use 10.0.1.xxx internally, so I guess that 255
devices is our limit.

Now this router works for ISDN or dialup connection to our ISP.  Don't
know if they have a model for cable or if our ISP can handle cable
connections.

If they did not, we would probably wind up with the NT box with a cable
modem running something like Wingate to allow the network internet
access.  Just like any other dialup connection, and no static IP
address, you would not be able to host your own site.  But I don't
recall this was one of your needs.

BTW, you may want to remind your cable provider that by connecting the
school they have an opportunity for a good public relations story.  It
sure beats the negative publicity that could be generated if they don't
connect the school.
