I have two comps hooked into one monitor, problem is, i only have one internet cable, is there a way i can hook another one up between the two and connect internet from the one tha has it to the one that doesn't?
Anexxion the usb link talked about a propriety program to link two pcs via a usb network. You read that then asked if you could solder usb cables together. The wasn't the point of the link.
You appear focused on the physical. You don't solder cables.. ever. If you want two usbs you put in a usb hub between the modem and the two pcs. At about $10 that sure beats destroying three cables in trying to solder them together.
Of course that doesn't get you a ip address for each pc so whatever one gets on first will be the only one on. Your attempt to get another ip address will result in your ISP enforcing their policies which may include termination of your account or additional charges levied against you.
I bet I'm not the only one who missed any mention of you having a router before post #11. An ethernet hub or switch (better) should do the job nicely. And I'm sure that Wanderer2 would have posted the same info about 23 hours ago if you had mentioned your router.
