    Install/activate IIS on both laptops.
    However, with that you will need to have the internet-connected laptop switched on, when the other one wants to go online.
    It's easier to get a router, and hook both laptops up to that.
    They can then independently go online.
    Look in our Storage & Networking forum, they have your info there.
