I read my DSL contract about 5 times to see if there was a problem with
this.  Nothing is spelled out in the contract.  If I call for tech support
and mention that my DSL computer is running as a proxy server, they don't
want to help.  So from my stand point, it is legal, but the phone company
does want to deal with network issues.  I suppose it is just a support issue
for them.
