NAT Router for other purposes

I use a Linksys BEFSR41B to connect both my PC and my Linksys printer server
together while I am using my Internet connection. This way I can use the
Internet and any of the three printers supported transparently with nothing
but selecting which printer I want to use.
And, since I use a company laptop as my PC, the hardware changes often. The
Linksys insulates these changes from my ISP connection.
Oh, in addition, I never see DOS attacks against my PC or my printer server,
since the Linksys does not respond to connection attempts.
Does this mean that I am an evil person, trying to cheat the ISP? Should I
be charged $5/month to use my printers which cannot be accessed from the ISP
I think not, and, not.
