Umm, more information? You need at least a modem. It routes your internet to your PC. A router is usually needed if you want multiple systems to connect to it.

If you have a wireless connection you will need an ethenet port to share you connection to another computer.

Basically a modem is needed for anything past dial up and if your trying to connect multiple computers to the internet then you will need a router (or) a PC with 2 Ethernet ports, one going into the first pc then out of the first pc and into the second pc. or if your first computer is hooked up wirelessly then you can just use that one port and connect it to your other computer, You can do the same thing with consoles, from your pc to the console for internet.

If your laptop and PC both as an ethernet port then connect a cable between the 2. Then on the PC that has the internet connection right click and go to properties. In there click sharing, and click share this connection. Your laptop should then see the internet through the PC.
An easier way would be to simply get a router.

Please don't double post. Edit button under your recent posts.

Are you using wireless on your laptop? for that, you need a wireless router.
