I just moved out of my house back into my parents' house, temporarily. Due to lack of space, I had to set up my desktop computer, which has WiFi, in the basement. It will pick up a 'very good' signal, yet it says the quality isn't sufficient enough to connect to the internet. I would like to connect on my PC to play WoW, which I can't do on my laptop due to poor hardware. My laptop gets a good signal and can connect from the basement. My question is how can I connect the laptop to the internet network and then open a wireless connection from my desktop to my laptop to connect to the internet with my desktop. I've read how to do so using an Ethernet cable, but currently all my cables are elsewhere : /
My laptop is running XP and my desktop is running Vista.

Thanks a lot in advance

Ah, just got my question answered elsewhere and it was a nope. Guess I'll have to try to do some rearranging to get the desk upstairs : /
