I have two laptops at home and want to set up a wireless network. Both have internal wireless adapters and I also have a Linksys wireless router (home n go maybe?) N120 I think (sorry it is not in front of me). I have a wireless verizon card that I use to connect to the internet. I was able to get the laptops connected to the router but cannot get on the internet with the second laptop. Seems I also have problems with the home network and the internet connection. I use verizon software that came with my wireless card and I can get both the wifi and the wwan connected but just can't see the internet from the second computer. I hope this is not too confusing as I am completely confused myself. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think the easiest thing to do would be set up an ad-hoc wireless setup. That is the 2 wireless cards talk to one another. Then once you get that setup and working you'll set up ICS(internet connection sharing) to share the connection from Verizon. Or perhaps ICS will do the work for you as far as the laptops talking. I haven't done ICS over wireless so this is virgin territory for us both lol. Weeeee

What version of windows is on both laptops? That way we can get you pointed in the right direction.

Both this and this will show you how to do it. The first is a little more detailed.

I know I am pointing to another site to help you but they have it all spelled out with screen shots. That rocks. Read through all the steps a time or 2 and it'll become clearer. If you have any questions, please post.
