You have two ways to do this.
1. Based upon what you said here PC2 would have to have 2 NIC cards to support the ADSL connection and the connection to PC1. You can enable sharing of the ADSL connection on PC2 to allow PC1 to use the connection. On your PC operating system help screen, search for "Share Internet" for information.
2. The second way is to use a 2nd port on the ADSL router (or use a 4 port hub) to connect PC1 to the connection directly. This cable will be a straight thru cable and not a crossover type.
