You need more english then what this guy said? Plug your modem into the router you buy and then plug in both PC's into the router also.

Who's your ISP? They should be able to do it for you if you don't feel inclined. (It'll likely cost you something though)

There!

Seriously though, just buy a router, run your internet into the plug that says internet. Then plug your two computers in two of the available plugs remaining. Power on the router, and reboot your modem. Should be it.

If you want to go wireless its a tad bit more complicated though.

thx for the translation. Origionally I thought it would be fairly simple but had no idea there were so many diff types of routers to choose from. I know nothing about networking so just wanted to make sure before I purchased any hardware, thx.

get any wireless-G router, also known as 802.11G routers. Doesn't have to be anything special for your application...any $50 router will work. Bigger known brands are Linksys, DLink, Belkin, Netgear, etc. Things that will drive the price up but aren't really needed:

wireless-N
gigabit routers

for the record, any of these will work. Personally, I use #14, but any of them will suite you just fine:
