To share the same internet connection without going wireless, you need to buy a router with built in modem which has 2 or more ethernet ports to which each PC is connected. If you are on a cable internet (not a telephone line), a combined router/modem is hard to find, so you'll need to buy just a router with 2 or more ethernet-to-PC ports and connect that to the existing cable modem. You the connect both PCs to the router.

Each PC will then be able to use the internet even if the other PC is switched off. Since most routers these days have wireless capability as standard you ought to consider going wireless. It's much more convenient, especially if a member of the family has a laptop.
