If you hook up both computers to the router, then the router to your cable modem, both computers can be on the internet at the same time. Your local PC does not need a public IP to play games. Keeping a computer on the public internet like that is risky anyways.
Thank you for the reply and I agree with you that keeping the computer is public is risky. However, I play most of my online games vs. my brother and we like to connect on most games we play directly via public IP. Examples, Flight Simulator X (seem to get a better connection than using gamespy, important for formation flying), many EASports games (EAOnline is not fun), and others. The question still stands.
