(You can use two network cards to share a connection if you dont have a router)

If you have more than one static ip addres from your provider, you can use a standard hub.

If not you will need box with a DHCP server, for example this one http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=62

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

you cannot usually connect a cable or adsl wire to a hub and share it, you need either a router, or a PC with 2 Network coards to act as one.

e.g.
Cable modem can only connect to 1 computer, not to a hub.

router or 2 network card pc can be used for ICS

you could simply use a cross over cable but how ever have see any settings? By make the machine you will dial up withs TCP/IP address 192.168.0.1 (static IP) and the other one 192.168.0.XXX  XXX = any number between 1 and 255 and make sure you have the default gatway and dns address 192.168.0.1 and you should be able to share the internet. as long as you have internet connection sharing enabled in your dial up connection however these instructions are only for dial up cable modem is a bit different. If you have that let me know and I will explain also .
