you need a router

You can set up internet connection sharing via the wizard but this requires you to leave you power hungry pc on for the laptop to get a www connection (this is possible but massively impractical)

A much better solution is to purchase a router with the correct type to your boradband (ADSL or Cable) and configure it to share your connection via NAT. This not only uses less power (about 10w instead of 500w of your PC) but also gives you an extra firewall

Peace
