The wireless adapters on both the laptop and the desktop will need to be set to "ad hoc" mode and then be able to communicate to each other. Once that is done, the desktop may need to enable Internet Connection Sharing. This is a little non-standard but I think it should work... have never done this myself.

All in all, this would be a lot easier if the router you have was replaced with a wireless-able one. :thumbsup:

Hey milzee

Well i' have the same thing, configured exactly as pchartwell said.
One thing that you need to keep in mind.
The laptop connection speed will be set by the desktop, for ex. if run something have on the desktop(game, graphic editor etc), that will effect the connection
speed of the laptop because the desktop acts as a "bridge"....

Good Luck
