    If you have dial-up you're pretty much stuck with Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

    If you have broadband you can still use ICS, but getting a router is much, much better. If you have broadband, tell us the brand and model of your modem, because often these days the modem turns out to actually be a modem/router combo.

    If you prefer to not go wireless you can do the same thing with a small ethernet switch and 3 cables.
