Then cheapest option is to buy a Hub/Switch [should cost less then 1k]. And connect modem and PC and laptop to ports in hub. Enable DHCP on modem and you should be all set.

other method - as it has both USB and lan - set the modem in PPOEA mode, connect one to USB and other to LAN - you're done... no extra things required...

yep, connnect 2 PCs to 2 different ports on ur router. My router has 4 LAN ports. I connect 2 PCs and can browse on both simultaneously and independently. It also helps to transfer files from PC to another using simple "network Neighbourhood"
