I have a desktop computer that is getting internet from another computer downstairs via ethernet cord (internet connection sharing), I'm wondering if I put another ethernet card in the computer upstairs I can then run an ethernet cord from that to another computer and enable sharing on that computer?

So one ethernet card will be receiving and then the other sharing.. Or won't that work? I know somehow I'd have to bridge those adapters together so they can communicate what is going on..

 

Or am I just going to have to buy a switch? Thanks.

Make your life simpler.  Get a wifi router.

 

Yes you can engage ICS on this second PC to another PC.  Problem is you will need to change the ICS dhcp server range to something other than 192.168.137.x so your 2nd connection doesn't have the same ip subnet as the first.  You can google how to change ICS ip address range for the how to.

 

Do realize that with each hop from the main internet it gets slower.  A router would give each direct connections to the internet.
