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...
