I currently have an external cable modem, connected to my PC via Ethernet.
What I'd like to do is share that internet connection, so I can go online on my laptop while my girlfriend is playing Final Fantasy (for hours, and hours, and hours) online.
I have a network switch (Belkin F5D5131UK8), but wasn't sure whether this would be easy as I think... Is it a simple matter of connecting the cable modem to the switch, and then both PC's to the switch?
If I can do this, do I simply need a couple of CAT-5 cables, or do they need to be crossover cables?
I have a horrible feeling that this is more complicated than it seems...
Any advice gratefully received!
