Hmm I'd assume there must have been though if you are splitting the connection towards another pc as well, you are going to recieve major slowdowns on the internet.
Especailly if you have something like 28k. If you have something like 56k and split it, you'd get back on each PC about the same as having a 28k I would think.

But I do think its possible and has been done. Not sure where you could get one from though, and it depends on your internet service provider

Hope this helps

it's basically an ethernet cable that has a different wiring..i'm pretty sure. But you could do that but it's the same as splitting because the main computer would be acting as a server which would do much for the speed.

One switch and two cables to connect two computers isn't expensive.

Yeah, that seems like a good way... though like I said, expect it to run much slower, well when you have both connected.
