It doesn't really help speed up any answer you may get by posting another topic with the same problem, it just creates more clutter.
Here's my (limited) understanding of your options:
1. You connect your PC to the broadband modem via USB, as is, and use Internet Connection Sharing to share that connection to your laptop via a network. Whether the network is wireless or a cable doesn't make any difference. You can only connect the laptop if the desktop is connected.
2. If your broadband modem has a network port you connect it to a wireless router then add wireless cards to both your laptop and your PC. They connect independently.
Laptop PCMCIA wireless cards - get the same brand as the wireless router you choose.
USB to wireless - they probably exist but I've never used one.
Will it all work in the new location? That depends on what type of broadband modem they have there.
