Not quite that simple. It depends whether you want to use both machines on the Internet at the same time, in which case you will have to network them, either by cables or by wireless. If you can put up with using them separately you can install your BB modem and ISP software onto the laptop and swap the BB modem between the two.

I use mine through a 3Com Wireless connection. I also have a 56k modem but it's not plugged in as I do not need to use it, unless I needed to send a Fax

You should be able to just plug the Ethernet cable in, this will work and setup it's self. You can use ether or both at the same time when plugged into a Router modem on the Net

PS they do not need to be Networked to use as above
