  1. Have a look at Windows Internet Connection Sharing -- you link the computer which is connected to the router to the second machine by a crossover ethernet cable (as a dealer). If a computer lacks an ethernet socket, it's quite simple to add a Network Interface Card.

    The main drawback of ICS is that both machines have to be on.
