Two PC's one internet connection, one online game

Is it possible to connect two PC's to one internet connection and have each PC playing the same online game against each other? When I try using my two to play against my friend (pro evo soccer) and we enter the same online room the screens go black.
Thanks in anticipation

Need more detail of your setup.

Are you both using seperate, legal, products keys? If you're using the same key, it won't let you play I should imagine.

You may need to port forward a seperate port for each computer as well. For more info on that, go to click here

I'm not overly familiar with online games, but couldn't you use port forwarding? Is setting ports a normal function within the options for games?

It may depend on the game...
I know for a fact that steam games work with two seperate steam accounts.
Is it a shared IP?
With MMORPGs where you have an account, then yes it will.
If the IP is read as one then it won't work.
