Virtual Network Interfaces
A common reframe is :

4 boxes each with one(1) nic card and each having a seperate connection through a router to the internet (CABLE/DSL).

IN THEORY could you set up LAN using a virtual network interface on that one nic card i.e.

eth0 ----->router ---->internet
eth0:1 --->LAN

Calk this one up to lack of sleep :)

What kind of network setup have you got?
I assume you've got 4 public ip's on each of the computers otherwise you would already have the private lan.
As far as I know if you are able to change the routing tables on the router then it should be theoretically possible. But then again I've never actually configured a router so I might be wrong.
