My sister has a desktop and a laptop. she has a standard 512kb aol internet connection and two modems. what is the best (cheapest and easiest) way to enable her to share the internet connection with both machines and will it enable her to use both computers to brouse the interweb at the same time? Is a network required or is there some way opf utilising both modems to save doing that?
Thanks in advance!

is to use 1 modem and link the two computers with a crossover network cable
