how can i make a ethernet cord splitter so i can hook up two computers to my one (cable one) modem?
i have a desktop in two rooms of my house and only one modem with just one ethernet port on it. so i can only hook up one computer at a time. i need both desktops hooked up and dont have the money for a modem with 2 ethernet ports on it. i have lots of extra random cords layin around. i usually can figure out how to do this sort of thing but im stuck. my modem has the cable home phone and internet all on it and it all has to b plugged in for anything to work. i got the cable to another end of the house by taking a short cable cord and plugging it into a splitter. so i could run a cable cord to my living room and my other room without having to pay for extra rooms. but i cant do that with the internet and i need to know how. can someone please help me?
