First make sure your pc has a modem, do you want the slow 56 k or Broadband?

You'll need a Broadband Router. That'll give you more than one connection to Broadband which you can then connect to both computers as you did with the Laptop.

Most likelly the broadband modem has a router built in. Unless its like my wireless High Speed connection, where no modem is needed.

Just get some cat 5 cable off of new egg at hook that into you moms computer.

Some of these broadband modems also have 802.11 g or b wireless built right in.

If it does have wireless you can get a wireless card or you Mothers computer (if it doesnt already have one).

You'll have to check with you ISP for the specs on your modem.
