What do you mean by leave you in control downstairs? Also a bit more info on operating systems and how you connect would be helpful.

ok. basically, both systems will be on XP sp2.

We are after putting in a router but have no idea what we need to get or if we can install it ourselves.
Plus, can we disconnect her internet connection from the main pc?

you need to decide if you want cable between the 2 pcs or wireless. You could have a peer to peer system such as the new idea that works through your mains wiring. If you just connect your pc to the net and use internet connection sharing then the 2nd pc can only connect when you have the main pc switched on.
