sharing aol connection

  1. 2 PC's, need to share their <spit> AOL Broadband connection - unfortunately
    I can't get to these machines so know very little about them and the
    hardware involved - is it as straightforward as with any other broadband
    connection ?

    Basically have they made it bloody awkward for non-techy people to do,
    because my ex can just about wire a plug ?
    no more
    no less
    just me
    (cheap at twice the price...)

    You can use a router to share the incoming connection, but both of the
    clients have to be running the client program or they wont have internet

    I dont know about an ICS style setup, but i allways had to use my own proxy
    server to share an AOL dialup account.
