    I am currently building a new computer. If I want to both keep my old computer and my new computer online, what is the best way to accomplish that? Is there a splitter (router?) of some type that I can hook both computers to, and then hook the splitter up to the modem? Is there a performance or reliability hit if I do? Or do I need to somehow network them? Any help or advise is appreciated.

    A router is all you need.

    Cool. Thanks for the help. I think I found what I need if I want to go that way. Seems like there may be a performance hit to do it, though.
