You could do Port Address Translation with most routers allowing the gaming through the router. This can be called different things on different routers. If you post your router model, I might be able to tell you how to set it up.
I'm trying to connect two computers to the same Broadband internet: AOL ADSL connection.
The problem is, I can't use a router because the router gives me an IP and clients can't connect to that from outside, I use one of the computers to be connected to the router as a host for a multiplayer game over the internet, using a router would mean other players couldn't connect.
Is there any other way to connect two computers to the same ADSL internet connection without using a router?
