    I have two computer in my house right now and my only source of internet connection is through a cable connected to my main laptop. Can I possibly have an internet connection by just using my main computer? I know that there should be router for wifi or another cable for others to connect but if I would just simply use my main computer is it possible through bluetooth or whatever?

    RestOwner do you need to have both your laptop and computer connected to the Internet at the same time?

    To connect both laptop on the internet, you need to have a router. It depends on you on what type of router you like.
    It could be a wireless one (wi-fi) or the wired ones wherein you need two separate cables.

    If you are using laptop it is possible to have connected on the internet by the use of router/wifi. But if you are using cable then there should be another cable extension connected from your modem to connect with other computer. Most of desktop connected from a cable came out of your modem and that is the only way to get access on the internet. So i suggest you have to connect a router so that you can have an internet access on you computers or cable that connected from you modem.

    What if I do not have a router or a spare cable for the other computer, are there any other ways like by using bluetooth or this remote network stuff?

    If you don't have a router, buy one. Right? That's the best thing you can do.
    As far as I know, you can't connect to the internet using bluetooth.

    There's nothing can be done unless you buy one. There are cheap routers out there that costs more or less $50.

    You can just simply purchase another cable which have two cable heads.
    so one head put to your main computers and another head you put to your another computer.
    If your country got sell such cables, it should work.
