Hi Sharvil,

Internet connection sharing can be set up very easily and cheaply (under $100) between two computers using a couple of network cards and a crossover ethernet cable. Network cards retail for around $30 each for a 10Mb/s card and crossover cables for $20. If you wish to expand your network later on you can then swap the crossover cable for a hub. Once you have your network setup then installing internet connection sharing is a breeze using the Windows 98/ME/XP Internet Connection Sharing Wizard.
