Why not just buy a router ? That way you could connect both at same time.

You don't need an app as Windows has Internet Connection Sharing for this situation. I couldn't find a tutorial here but Microsoft has Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) - Windows Help

The picture on BJB's link shows a Wired Hub but I'd use an Ethernet Switch instead as it usually works better.

The OP only has the two computers so he/she doesn't need either switch or hub, just an Ethernet cable.
