Connect your router to your home connection, and both computers to the router. Setup your NIC in the "Network Connection" in "Control Panel".
Once everything is configured unplug your Work computer and connect it to your Work Modem. You can either run without a router or pickup a cheap $20 one on the internet. Go to Start> Accessories> Communications> Network Connection> (left frame) Create new Connection. Setup your NIC to connect with the second modem.
The down side to this is you will have to swap wires. You can setup a second NIC but it can be tricky. It may setup without a problem or it may never configure. Either way you will have to enter the Network Connection pane and enable\disable the appropriate NIC to switch between modems.
It is not hard it is just not automatic.
