Is it possible to interconnect two notebooks using a crossover cable (with RJ-45s at each end) and be able to access the internet line that is connected to one of them without using a modem? I have succeeded in linking them via wireless but cannot connect to the internet on both with one line. Please advise.

Are you wanting to connect two notebooks together using an ethernet cable to link them without any other device in between? Generally, you need a router. If you want both notebooks to connect, you connect the router to the cable or DSL modem (if those are in use). The router then allows both computers to access the internet and each other if the network permits.
