Hi Faraway,

Well I am not sure why you donot want to use a router or switch or hub.
Is it because , you want to save money or you plan to technically challenged without them.

Anyway, you can make use of Internet connection sharing

First thing first...  Does your neighbor live in a separate building from you (or house)?  Where is the DSL modem located?  

Here is the problem if you are thinking of running CAT5 copper between 2 buildings....  As Sun can tell you (my friend the Electrical Engineer) there is a potential electrical difference when connecting copper between 2 buildings...  Am sure he can explain this better than I can, but basically electricity finds the best ground.  If there is a potential difference between the two, you could very well find your network fried by connecting these up....

And, there is no doubt you need a router.. both for security and ease of use...  they are cheap, so do yourself a favor and go get one..

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Buy a cheap linksys broadband router for $20 - $30 and implement it in literally 5 minutes or less. Or is it that your neighbor doesn't know that you are hooking into his ADSL line?

If your trying to connect to your neighbors network (which may or may not be considered acceptable by his provider) Get a wireless router and avoid the entire potential difference FE speaks of.

ICS is a headach and if your time is worth anything I strongly recommend a hardware solution as everyone above mentioned... YOu can get a combo unit to do the wireless also or get seperate units.
Assuming your neighbor is using the adsl line also
>>Note: i don't want to use a hub, router or switch
not to be rude, but that's a lot like
"I want to get email, but don't want to get a computer"
these devices are made specifically for this purpose, Best bet is go wireless (if the distance is not to great)
that is assumning you have your neighbor's permission to tap into their line :-)
