Create a wireless network from one laptop and bridge it to the ethernet port on the same laptop. Use a crossover cable or get a crossover adapter for a regular ethernet cable to connect that laptop to the pc. Have the remaining laptop connect to the other laptop's wifi.

thanks for that – reza Jul 14 '11 at 21:28

It's probably easiest to buy a router and connect all of them with cable (or some of them using wireless network). As far as I know, you need to have some kind of switch or router.

I think there is another way ... without routers. – reza Jul 14 '11 at 21:10
A router would be the easiest solution. – anjunatl Jul 14 '11 at 21:14

Using a switch or a router should solve the case
