    Am not 100% sure and if am wrong s1 on AD will correct me, I think you need a network cable and of course a network card which most pc's today have one onboard, as far as i know windows has all the software needed to do what you want just the case of setting it up.

    Good Luck.

    You can get usb to network kits these days - never used one.

    A network card for a PC is about £3.50 ($7) http://www.dabs.com/uk/channels/hardware/networking/productView.htm?quicklinx=1Y31 if you don't already have one and a laptop one - pcmcia is £10 ($20) http://www.dabs.com/uk/channels/hardware/networking/productView.htm?quicklinx=28V1

    If you are not using a hub then you need a croosover cable as ddp says £2.50 ($5) http://www.dabs.com/uk/Search2/Product+Details.htm?quicklinx=18LK&searchphrase=crossover

    Job done
