There are some options

1) Get a multiple port router (many routers have 4 or 5 ports for LAN connection)

2) Get second LAN card for your desktop, then share the one connect to internet. Use a cross cable connect your laptop to the second LAN card of your desktop. Or you can get a hub or switch to use regular cables to connect your desktop and laptop.
