Is there a reason you want to try and use Bluetooth for this?

given the average range of bluetooth, and that it's weird, I think your'e far better off with a ethernet cable. Much easier to do it.

You don't need a router to play "lan games" (peer to peer) A switch will work fine. In other words 1 PC would act as the host and the other pc/pc's would connect to you locally over the internal network. But you would have to connect all the pc's via an Ethernet cable for this to work via the switch.
You would only need a router if both computers wanted to play against each other online via the internet or if you wanted the laptop to connect wirelessly to the internal network

Who is they? What games are you trying to play? And what hardware do you currently have for networking?

Gigabit nics have auto-mdx, and maybe newer 10/100 nics may have it as well. This allows you to hook up 2 computers with a straight Ethernet cable and not require a crossover cable.
Just plug in the cable between the computers and you are networked.

if the cable is crossover it will have one end of one color and one end of another colour (mine are gray on one end and blue. Also, you have to connect both computers to the switch, and doing so with a single cable is a bit... impossible.
