hey yall,

i'm a total network noobie so please dont laugh at this question ^^

i've got a computer here that's connected to a router and acceses the internet through that router.

the router's only got one um.. slot? for a network cable but i wanna connect two computers.

so here's the question: is it possible to put a switch or a hub into the router so that i can get two computers to access the internet?

what kinda cables do i need? crossover (computer to computer) or rj-45 (computer to router) ??

hope some one can help me,

so.. just to make sure:

I'm gonna go buy a switch and connect it to the router with a regular cat5E cable.

then i'll connect the two computers through regular networking cables, too and I'll be able to get on the internet with both of em at the same time?

are they both gonna need to connect seperately, like both have some kinda software to dial in to the internet ? or is only one of them dialing in and the other one connecting to the internet through a lan connection ?

thanks for helping tho
