  1. spend 30 or so dollars and get a router

  2. .....or a switch.

  3. only if the ISP give you 2 IP's (which most consumer grade broadband ISP's don't)

  4. My cable modem provider allows me to connect 2 machines through a 4 port switch. Both of the computers use DHCP and obtain different IP's. I do not pay anything extra.

    I know the switches use NAT, but I thought it was interesting to see that they allowed me to lease 2 IP's from their DHCP simultaneously.
