How can I connect my lap top computer to my desk computer which is connected to internet?

How can I connect my lap top computer to my desk computer which is connected to internet?
My desk top computer does not have micro soft office software, my lap top does. My desk top computer is the one connected to the internet. I want to use such software when I am using the internet.

Instead of trying to connect both computers and internet, you can connect your laptop to the internet and use it.
If you really want to connect the computers together, you need to buy a switch or a router. Connect both computers to the switch. Connect internet to the desktop and enable Internet connection sharing.
This needs some money, a lot of knowledge and more of patience. If you don’t have any of them, you better use the first option I suggested.

    The easyiest way to do this is just get a router and hook both systems up to it. and it to the modem. if you get a wireless router both can be connected and the laptop can stay portable. but if a router is not an option. you will need a crossover cable. connect it to the laptops. ethernet port and the other end of the cable to a free ethernet port on the desktop. if there is only one port on your desktop and it is taken by the modem then you will need another network card on teh desktop. After this is done you will need to go to config network connections select both local area connections and bridge them.

    The most cheapest method is to connect both via a hub and ethernet cables.Turn on internet connection sharing…
    or else use a router(little more expensive) ;).
