Question about Internect Connection Sharing w/a T-1

I subsribe to the T1 line offered in my apartment complex, does anyone know if it's possible to share this line with my other computer via a second NIC card in my main PC going to my other one? I used to do this before I had a router with ATT Broadband, but this connection is Cat 5 from the wall straight to my ethernet adapter.

I don't have a static IP either, does that matter at all? I don't even know if this can be done, though I haven't even tried it yet.

Sure. Put in a second NIC in the PC that you will setup the ICS (Internet Connection Service). One NIC to the wall jack and the other NIC to a hub or switch so your second PC can connect to.

cool, I'll try it. I didn't know if me being on a LAN like this made much difference. I've never had experience with it.

If you are allowed more than 1 IP address, then simply get a cheap 4 or 8 port switch and plug them both in. If you can't get multiple IP's, then you could use a cable/dsl router most likely.

ya It costs an extra 20 dollars a month to get another IP and I don't use my laptop THAT much hehe.

I have a router though so I'll try it when I get the chance, Thanks.
