The short answer: Yes you do.

The long answer: Give some details about the type of internet connection, what kind of modem you have, how it is connected to the desktop, what make and model wireless modem/router you have, and whether you have wireless network cards in the desktop or laptop. What version(s) of Windows do you have?

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.
