Can I hardwire a splitter for cable access?

My huisband and I have laptops alike: Toshiba, Vista HP. I would like to "hardwire" the two together so that we can go our separate ways on the Intenet.  Am I able to use a splitter of some type on the modem (comcast) to interconnect the 2 pc's? I have a new 2nd modem if needed. We don't want to do wireless, we want to know if we can hardwire this type of split of the cable connection?  If it's possible, how is that done, please?

you just need a basic ethernet router witha a 4 port switch on the back. PLug your laptops into the LAN(switch ports) and plug the wan port into your cable

something like this

providing your ISP's modem goes into a network port(the wide phone ports). If it goes into a phone line port you will need an adsl modem router.

The solution was complete and easy to understand. I won't know if it's successful until I purchase the hardware and try to make it work, but I'm very pleased with the response.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write here.  The first answer received was very helpful.  The second answer provided additional information, which was also very helpful.
