One adaptor, Internet on two computers?

  1. I want to split the Internet with one neighbour. He has the wireless hub and I have only one wireless adaptor on one computer.
    How can I connect my second computer to have Internet on both computers simultaneously? Can I use ethernet cards?

    Thanks.

    It's cheaper to just get a USB Wi-Fi adapter. You can use Ethernet but you need a loop back connector to share the internet connection.

    You could use the onboard NICs and a crossover cable and ICS, but its far more restrictive than just doing what fastco said.
