You will need to purchase a router. They come in wired and wireless models. Whether or not you want the wireless feature in entirely up to you. The second computer will need a NIC,(ethernet adapter), which most newer computers already have, and if you choose to go wireless with the second computer, then you will need a wireless adapter. Wireless adapters can be PCI, which is installed internally on the computer or USB, which will attach to the computer via a USB cable.
