I have two computers and two daughters that have a need to be on the internet at the same time. The place that I live only allows me the wonderful privilege of dial up. I need a solution to my problem. What can I do to get these computers on line at the same time? What will I have to buy and I don't want to get another phone line as I already have two lines and they are both filled at the same time now. Is there some type of splitter or something I can buy?

Hello jeepbub and welcome to BC.

This can be done with Internet Connection Sharing. The idea is that one computer accesses the internet and the other accesses the internet from the first one. You need your current dialup modem and both computers will need Network Cards, which they may already have. You will also need a Cat45 Crossover cable to run from one computer to the other.

What is your operating system? Go to Start then Help if they are 95/98/ME, and when help comes up use the Index tab and look for Internet, sharing connections and click display for some further info.

Post back if you have more questions.
