Anyone know if its possible to get 2 Pcs hooked up on the same DSL line, with seperate IP addresses, without buying second IP?

There is two ways I know of to do it. One requires you to purchase a DSL Router which I might add have come way down in price. Here Scroll down a bit for example of Linksys BEFSR41 4 Port.

The second less desirable way is to use one computer as a proxy server to the Internet for the other computer. the drwback to this is the Proxy has to be on when the other wants to access.
Freeware can be had Here

Does this give both computors there own IP addresses, as the interenet would see them or shared IP?

Most providers will only 'give' you one ip addy. And I know that mine attached the MAC from my network adapter to my ip addy. From experience the easiest is going to be the way of a router.

I hear that most game servers wont allow 2 PC's with the same IP addy, is there a way around this?

You'll have to check with your ISP, I have DSL and had 3 machines on a hub, each got their own IP address. But some ISP's either don't allow it or charge extra for it. Without knowing your ISP, we can't give any better information.
