Is it possible for two people in the same house (each with their own computer) to be able to be on the internet at the same time using the same phone line? If so, how?

no it isn't and if you are using the same account you can't even be across country and be on at the same time..I tried that one  last month... *s..now that is with phone lines  and I have two in here.. you can both  always be on a computer  you just can't both be on line with the same phone line and/or same paid account.

Two people can use the same account at the same time, just signed in under different users, but you can't both use the same phone line simultaneously.  That is, I didn't believe you could.  Last week my wife was online and my son played a videogame online, using the same telephone number, with one of his friends.  Both she and my son were dialed in to the same line.  So, now that I've totally confused you, I'll hush. LOL

Are the computers networked (linked together)?

I believe it's possible with today's technology.. You need a 'hub' though.. (as opposed to a hubby - that's old technology)... The hub is a networking system that I haven't researched, as there's only one of me and I can easily dial up from either my PC or my laptop separately...

Anybody know about the hub??..

Yes, you have to set up a network using an Ethernet card in each computer to have your computers networked first.  Then you need to download the instructions from your Windows 98 or better for ISC (Internet Sharing Connection) first, BEFORE you download and install the actual ISC program, otherwise it will not work properly. *one of the 'perks' Microsoft provides but doesn't offer much support on it.*
If you decide to go this route I may have the support file if you care to email me.

Well as I type the man upstairs is on my line!  I have ADSL and am allowed three different extensions on it, but you have to tell them at the time of connection that you have others users in the house with their own machine.  In otherwords, I pay the bill, and have three separate accounts within the account.  One I gave him, and the one I use, and hey, maybe I should give you the other one   kidding.  Check with your internet provider, I know here in Canada, with ADSL through the phone company it can indeed be done, because I am doing it! Opps ... yes and I bought a "hub" whatever that is, and the ethernet thingee.
