There are several ways to accomplish that.
- Buy a switch($10~$100 for home PRO stuff goes to thousands of dollars) and hook up both PC's to the switch and connect that to the router.
- Buy a new network card and put in one of the PC's and use it as a router, switch or bridge.
- If your router supports you can hook both PC's directly to the router, but if it had another port you wouldn't be asking right?
Those are from the top of my head that is not that good and probably there are better ways to do it.
The easiest is the switch one and probably the cheapest, if your ISP lets you login from more then one machine at the same time your are gold, some ISP's charge for that saying it is a feature others do that for free some ISP's let you login on the same account from 3 different machines or locations which is important for roaming.
If your ISP doesn't let you have more then one machine connecting to the account you can still use the switch but you need to configure the router to access the account and configure the PC's to use the ethernet.

Hmmm...better update the price of the switches to $50~$200. I saw some costing $10 but they were chinese and I can't find them anymore.
