    The simpe answer is yes.

    Depending on how you want to do this I can think of two options, I'm sure others could suggest more. You either need to buy a router or have another pc with 2 nic to act as a router.

    like the above post said you really only have those two options. I would go for the former as well (buy a new router) but if thats not an option for what ever reason then your going to need to buy a cross over cable and setup a network bridge.

    Plz dont take the following link the wrong way
