    Just so long as you have to phone jacks and a modem in
    each computer you shouldn't have a problem, just plug them
    in and go. As long as you don't try to connect them at
    the same time your good. If you want to connect at the
    same time you'll have to make a network, but if you
    already have to NIC's than you won't have to purchase
    anything, but a crossover cable to do this. Although
    setting up internet sharing can be a pain so check out
    www.practicallynetworked.com to accomplish this easily.
    But if you just want to connect one at a time ignore all
    this, and plug em in and go.
