All you would need is a wireless router and a wireless adapter(we use a Lynksis). Unplug your ethernet cable from the back of the pc that has the cable modem on it and connect it to the routers ethetnet port. Then from port #2 connect a cable back to the pc you just removed from. You will need to connect the wireless adapter via a USB port on the other pc. Run the newtwork setup wizard. Hope this helps ;)
