connecting 2 computers to 1 internet stick

Hi i have 2 laptops that i would like to connect to 1 internet stick to browse on the internet at once with both laptops but not thru WiFi (that no one should be able to detect it on any device) if anyone could help me or refer to a tutorial how to do it.

thank really much (and sorry for such a silly question i'm just very new to networking)
