Hi, I have a desktop PC and a laptop that i am hoping to network wirelessly. My pc is connected to the net through a USB ADSL Modem. Is it possible to share the connection to the net without a router using a USB wireless adapter, in the desktop PC, and a wireless card in the laptop?

Certainly should work without a hitch, so long as you remember to make sure the PC connected to the modem is switched on when you need to access the web through the laptop (I know, sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised how many times I used to forget!!)
