My Current Computer uses SBC Yahoo! DSL and is connected via a Local Area Network.

I have another computer that has "Integrated 10/100 Ethernet".



What would I need to get in order to be able to use the internet on both computers at the same time (a 10/100 ethernet switch? router?)?

you need a router. not a switch. i'd get a wireless router... you might need it later on if you decide to go wirless. BUT make sure you secure it right or else you'll be making your neighbors very happy :whistling:

you could actually get away with a switch or a hub or a router in this situation...especially if all you want to do is get internet access on both computers...but i would agree that a router would give you the most options in the long run.
