Is your modem currently connected to your PC by USB.

If so you are better off replacing this with a modem/router

Netgear/Belkin/D Link or Linksys are all much of a muchness.

I highlight this one to give you an idea of the spec you require not as a particular recommendation. click here

Hi bremner,

We bought ours from BT, as we have two computers we can use both at the same time. It costs £79 at the moment and we got ours the next day. It was easy to setup too.
Cheers

So do you have a dial up connection to the internet? If you do not disregard all below, suppose you could disregard most of above also. lol

Then you want to feed the connection via the lan port to a router/hub/switch, so you can internet share on other computers.

I don't think you would need to go as far as a router, a 4 port switch should do the trick, it's cheaper. You hope to hard wire to the main computer. If you just want to use one other computer, then a straight cross over cable between the machines should be enough. If both machines have a lan socket.;-)
