You can have BB on both computers and use the same modem (swapping it from computer to computer) or buy an extra modem (Ebay) and connect with that, using your username and password. This only works if you do not connect at the same time. If you connect at the same time a router is needed.

No but you will just have to swap the modem from one to the other

connecting two pc,s will it make broadband slower or not

An easier way is to use 2 wireless pci cards and have one pc connected directly to the internet and the other one can connect through that. But your main pc has to be connected to the internet for the other one to connect.
