My mother has Comcast out in Downingtown. At times the loop gets full and the speed is simular to dialup. I tried connecting a Linux box as a firewall, but all traffic was halted. It seemed that when the saw a Linux system with a dhcp client it would not assign an IP address. So I bought a Belkin router and connected her Linux box and her Windows box.
The Belkin router allows port forwarding so I can ssh into the Linux Box
Comcast and Verizon do not allow any servers and they will not give you a static IP
I hope that Speakeasy doesn't do the same to me. Thankfully there is no Covad in Juniata Park.
There are other ISP's other than Speakeasy in the area that will give you a static IP along with allowing you to run your own servers.
For the switch over you might want to install the new ISP on a second line.
