Is it possible to connect 2 completely separate computers to one 'phone land line.I want to connect one computer via a BT 105 Voyager ADSL USB modem and another completely separate computer via a BT Home Hub either wirelessly or using a USB conection.Can I do this using a double 'phone outlet socket(a doubler?)

In short, no. However I stand to be corrected!

You can only connect one modem to the line you can connect several routers to that modem (but not combined modem routes like the BT105 or hub)

To enhance Marg7's answer, you can also only use the same isp and account. Even through a router two seperate pc's can not access two different isp's or two different internet accounts at the same time. As far as I'm aware.
You can not connect two modems/modem routers to a phone line at the same time.
