If Computer 1 is behind a NAT router, then Computer 2 will accept DHCP settings
from it (but why can't you connect Computer 2 directly?). If Computer 1 is
directly connected to the modem, this won't work without you paying for 2 IP
Make sure that Computer 2 is well protected. ICS is a NAT router, and protects
the client computers as a NAT router does. Without ICS, you need to protect
Computer 2 as carefully as you protect Computer 1.
