If you want to have both PCs connected to the ISP at the same time, you need some form of networking.

Only 1 PC at a time can use a single phone line to dial into your ISP.

If you do not wish to run network wireing, you can get network cards that work over your existing phone lines.

You then need to decide which PC will be the host, and which will be the client.

Install Internet Connection Sharing on the Host (usually the one with the newest version of Windows) and set up the other PC as the client.

Does it have to be a Netware Solution? Seems a bit like overkill to me. TheChas has given a proper solution, please give comment about what's wrong with it, and what you expect.

You may even try posting this question in the the win95/98 or winntor win2000 forums (depending on your OS)

You can of course connect two modems to one phone line, but they won't be able to connect at the same time. You may try to create a serial link between the two computers, install SLIP or PPP and connect that way, but IMHO the cost of two lan adapters is so low that you can save yourself a lot of trouble.

Each PC can dial out separately, and exclusively.

If you wish to have both PCs connected to the internet at the same time, you either:

Need to setup a network,

or, install a second phone line.
