You need a router to share the internet. Or you can connect the modem to one PC and use the Windows internet sharing feature to get the internet on the other computer.
so i can replace the switch connecting the 2 pcs with a router and connect the router to the dsl modem and still assign the static ip of and on the pc respectively, and i suppose the default getaway would be the ip address of the dsl modem then ya
