    Get a wireless router.
    If your internal DSL modem doesn't have a CAT5 heading out, run that NIC as a proxy and run it to a router.

    There are millions of ways to do this.

    In short, CAT5 is a network cable (it uses a larger jack and connects to network cards, hubs, switches, etc. etc.)

    What it sounds like you need to do is setup a Proxy. What a proxy does is simple: it takes the IP address assigned by your DSL provider and acts as a DHCP client to assign other PCs on your network an individual IP address...

    Think of it this way...Your DSL modem is assigned the IP 135.189.232.1
    You have only 1 IP address available to reach the internet. When you setup a proxy, you are creating a link between your modem and your Network Card.

    This link is the DHCP client, it assigns an unique IP address to every PC plugged into your Network Card. Simply:

    ------>DSL MODEM ----///PROXY-DHCP CLIENT\\\\-->--NIC----->NETWORK

    Windows comes with it's own proxy built in that should allow you to connect the 2...I will look for something in the meantime that may be easier...

    Internet Connection Sharing is a part of Win2k

    Check this out, and let me know how it turns out
    Microsoft ICS Article

    Also, take a look at WinGate... this is pretty decent tool that might do the trick... www.deerfield.com
