    Not much point in getting a wireless router if they're right next to each other (unless they're miles away from your phone point or something) plus wired will be faster for general networking purposes.

    You can go the router way (net -> router -> pc1+pc2) or you could use ICS on pc1 so you can access the net on pc2; of course pc1 will have to be on if pc2 wants to access the net. So choose whichever is best for you; routers are damn cheap nowadays and lays the path for extra machines to be added easily if need be.
