Is it possible to share my internet connection with a 2nd wireless card?

Here's my scenario......I have free wifi at my apartment. But the signal is a little weak. My laptop's internal network card can pick up the signal, but my iPad doesn't see the network because the signal is too weak. I know my iPad can connect to the network, because I can pick up the signal on it in the laundry room.

So if I have a 2nd wireless card, can I share the internet connection to my iPad? I can't find a solution anywhere, everything I find is how to share a wired connection with a wifi card, but not share a wifi connection.
Any ideas?

I'm running XP Pro

You should be able to do it. Use the first NIC to get the wireless signal and enable ICS oh this NIC. Use the second NIC and the Ipad to create an ad-hoc wireless network.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
