How to share a wireless subscription with two laptops without paying two subscriptions

"I have one vista laptop and one XP laptop and I only have access to a wireless ISP with which I have one account.
Here’s what I have done:
On the Vista I enabled Internet sharing on the wireless adapter
I then gave the LAN adapter a static IP and bridged the two connections
The LAN from the Vista was plugged into the WAN port of a wireless router
The XP workstation connects to the wireless router, no problem up to now"

"I have successfully used Jana server to share a single network connection. This not only has proxy capability but also has a HTTP(S), FTP, and DNS server.

The JanaServer 2 is amongst other
things a proxy server, that makes it
possible for LAN members, everyone or
a group as a part of the LAN, to
access the internet via a Modem, ISDN
or DSL connection. For this the
program must be installed on the
computer, that can access the internet
by an installed modem, ISDN or a DSL
adapter. No additional program on the
other LAN computers is necessary."
