  • Take the ethernet cable out of your desktop and connect it to your laptop....it kinda looks like a bigger telephone cord. usually a yellow cable. its the one with you internet connection.

  • You can do what finkette says or you can connect a usb cable to your modem and to your laptop and have them both work at the same time.

  • All you really need to do it sounds like is to go and buy a cheap router to hook up. That way you can use your laptop anywhere in your home that you'd like

  • ^^^ this is what we did. Hooked the modem up to the computer and router up to the computer and it runs all of our wifi.

  • You can get a router so both the computer and the laptop can be online at the same time.

  • I agree with the other posters; disconnect the ethernet cable from your PC to your laptop.
