Question Please help, is there such a thing as a network cord..

splitter? This would be for an office. There's only one network outlet in there, and two computers. They both need to be connected to the internet as well as networked together. Aside from a router, is there some kind of 1-into-2 splitter? What is my best bet?

get a 5 port switch, the d-link ones are under 50 bucks and work waaaay better than a splitter.

Here are some you could get:
