I highly recommend using a D-Link 8-port Residential Gateway. You plug each computer into it with network cables as well as an external modem (phone or cable). It will allow you to share the modem without having both computers on at the same time. You also gain the advantage of the built in proxy/firewall software in the gateway and if you upgrade to cable/adsl internet the upgrade is very painless. Adding additional computers is as easy as plugging them into the gateway. Very slick product. Newer models also include a printer port to share a printer through the network as well. Cheers.
