    many solutions

    It depends on what you call easy...

    anyway: two methods are common:

    1) use a software router/firewall prog on a box which acts a as router/gate to the internet.
    a simple Linux box will do all the work, look at
    www.BBIagent.com for an example and more info

    2) use a hardware router/firewall to share your connection (easiest way) good routers are available by Linksys.
    the Dlink products are a good choice.

    ______

    example for 1)

    Internet
    |
    xDSL modem (public IP)
    |
    Firewall / router box 192.168.2.1
    |
    your LAN hub/switch
    | |
    PC1 PC2
    192.168.2.11 192.168.2.12


    example for 2)

    Internet
    |
    router/switch
