If both your pc and laptop have lan ports whether onboard or card all you neede is a crossover cable.

You can use a USB data cable to transfer files but if you wish to share you internet connectio then you need to network, either by cable or wireless.

I have just done the same thing for a friend of mine, only difference was that it was between 2 laptops. we used Infrared but I have also used a USB crossover cable before now which doen't cost much and is a lot quicker than Infrared.
Other ways is to use a USB memory stick if you only want to transfer files.
