How do I share 1 external modem with several computers

I would like to use one external modem with several computers but I do not want to switch cables all the time.  Can I use a switch box and if not what is the best way to do this?

If these computers are connected as LAN, you can use the WinGate.

There is a switch solution if the proposed answer is not what you want.  Wingate is good, but if 2 or 3 users use the connection at the same time... Bandwidth problem???

Sure use Wingate (on Win95/NT), LAN, direct cable

I agree with magigraf the switch box should work just fine.
I have not used Wingate so I cannot say about it.

The suggestion is a good one.  I was able to get the switch box to work using the proper adapters.  The previous attempt failed because the signals were being reversed with the cables I was using.  This solution works ok with multiple users in the same area.  Thanks.
