There are a few options that I would suggest you investigate. First, you should invest in a DSL router. Configure the DSL router for sharing addresses between two or more machines.

By configuring a DSL router to share the connection, you can have multiple connections on the backend.
Alternatively, you can also read articles on internet connection sharing within the windows operating system. TechTarget has information that illustrates how Network Address Translation works within the Windows 2000 operating system.
