i have two windows xp computers i want to connect to a wireless network,what would be the easiest and cheepest way to share a cable broadband service.

click here plus a pair of PCI wireless adapters (assuming that we're talking about desktops here).

For cable services, don't buy a modem/router.

Yes you could if you leave the gateway computer on all the time, using Internet Connection Sharing to share the internet connection. The router option is preferable.
