Default New Router

hi,

u may have seen my other posts about a new pc well its up and running but he took it home and he wants to keep his old pc on the internet aswell as his new 1

he has virgiin media internet with a patch cable modem i bought him a switch so he could run the 1 cable and split it to 2 computers but only 1 computer is reciving internet is that coz his modem is just a modem and not a router ???

would this http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116601 split his internet connection so he could run 2 computers off it ??

or would he have to contact virgin media for them so allow more ip addresses ???

although i thought a router allowed multiple connections through 1 ip ???

so should the switch i bought him work ?? or does he need a router with built in cable/DSL modem ?

most modems have built in switches so obviously a switch wouldnt help but a router would split the connection i belive
