I read your post and found it quite interesting. Click on the thumbnail to see what may be a possible solution.

I will try to describe the setup as simply as possible.

Your ISP connects to the cable modem in House #1. From here you want to split the access to both House #1 and House #2. This is where a router will do nicely.

I suggest getting a router with 5 ports. One WAN port to connect to the cable modem, and four LAN ports to connect the rest of your network. Here is how the router will be setup.
WAN port -> Cable modem
LAN port 1 -> Adapter #1 (this will be the Vonage phone adapter to service House #1)
LAN port 2 -> Network Device (this device will distribute the network connection to House #2)
LAN port 3 -> PC
LAN port 4 -> PC

In House #2, the Network Device will be connected to Adapter #2, which will be the Vonage phone adapter to service House #2. Any PCs in House #2 can also connect to the Network Device depending on how many free LAN ports are available.

The Network Device in House #2 can either be a router or switch. If it's a router, then House #2 can be its own network with separate IP addresses. This is if the DHCP service is turned on for the router. If the Network Device is a switch, then House #2 will be part of the House #1 subnet (same IP address range). This is a little technical but bear with me. The main question is "do you want to share files/folders between the PCs in House #1 and the PCs in House #2 and/or do you want to be able to print from one house to the other house?" If the answer is yes, get a switch. If the answer is no, get a router. Typically, switches are cheaper than routers, but routers offer better network management.

In the diagram, I showed how a switch could be added to House #1. This would be in order to support more PC connections than the router in House #1 had available. The same goes for House #2.

Steve48 brought up a good point about the distance of the connection between House #1 and House #2. There is a transmission limit for CAT5. I believe it's 100 meters before the signal becomes degraded and/or packet loss becomes an issue.

Good luck on this project. I am curious to find out how things go. Keep us posted.

I almost forgot to mention that the routers and/or switches can be purchased relatively cheap depending on what manufacturer you decide on. CISCO is by far the most costly option. Linksys, D-Link, and Belkin are just a few examples of cheaper manufacturers.
