Connecting two Sony computers to the internet

  Murghalador 09:58 26 Sep 2006

I am very new to computing and would welcome some help.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop and a Sony Vaio laptop. I access the internet on the desktop via a PCM1A vodafone GPRS card (no landline here)and would like to also connect the laptop to enable them to be used at the same time.

Is there a router or something else available that will link the two computers and also allow the use of a single vodafone card to connect to the internet.
The desktop has bluetooth as well as thernet connections.

Easiest option

Link the 2 together with a network crossover cable, and use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) ...downside desktop has to switched on for the laptop to access the net though
