Right, but a little too simplified.
To get this working this will be easiest.
1) on the PC connected directly to the modem, go to Control panel > Network Connection now right click on the connection that is hooked up to modem, go to sharing, and enable sharing.
2) Now click other connection (the one that will be connected to the other PC) Go ino the TCP\\IP properties and configure the connection for a static IP. Use 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
3) Go to the secondary PC, go back to network connection, and go into properties for the LAN connection on this PC. Setup this PC to use static IP 192.168.0.2 subnet 255.255.255.0 and GATEAY 192.168.0.1.
That should have you up and running
