    ok, so if i get a "CROSSOVER ETHERNET CORD" and DIRECTLY connect two computers together, will I be able to play civ4 LAN? If so, is there any lag during LAN play?

    Also, I get my internet from my ISP through a dish outside my house that runs a circular wire to a "Cisco Systems 350 Series PCI Wireless LAN Adapter" (that why my ethernet port is free). If I made a LAN connection through a crossover cable to an other PC, could I "bridge" the Wireless connection and LAN connection to have internet on both PCs? Thanks

    Multiplayer should work and there should be no lag at all.
    Indeed, you should be able to bridge internet connection. The only problem (maybe not for you) is that you need to have the first PC running in order to have internet on the second PC. Read e.g. here: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/ics_xp
