Wish to access Internet Connection on two PC's...

Hi There,
I currently have a network set up between my PC and laptop. I access the internet through the PC and this works fine.

The problem is, the PC is my brothers, and if I want to use the internet on my laptop then he has to have his PC on be able to access it.

Is there a way for me to be able to connect to the internet from my laptop without going through the PC?

We are on Broadband using a Speedtouch 330 modem.

I hope you can help.

Yes. Ditch the modem and buy an ADSL modem/router. And yes, you do have to ditch the modem; can't use USB ADSL modems with routers.
