Windows 7: Comcast Cable Modem - wireless options

Comcast Cable Modem - wireless options

I am sure this is a dumb question, but here goes....

My father has a comcast cable modem and he is hard wired to the device. His laptop is running with Windows Vista. I have a new laptop running windows 7. Without purchasing a wireless router, is there anyway I can get my laptop to get out to the internet? I have looked at virtual router software, but I believe they will not work with Windows Vista. Any suggestions? Thanks.

See here: Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

A wireless router would be a better way to go though. Probably faster and it would not require your father's laptop to be on for you to have an internet connection.
