My internet connection is wireless with roof antenna and connection thru wall to my desktop computer (no router).

I also have a laptop with wireless capability. My desktop computer does not have wireless capability.
I would like to connect my laptop to my desktop via wireless to browse the internet.

What do I need and how do I setup my two computers to do this?

Aldi supermarket has a usb dongle. Would this be helpful?

Using any NIC whether USB or PCI wil allow you to communicate with your laptop. I do not like USB but it appears to be a sound solution for many.
Once you have the NIC installed you can connect the two computer via "ad hoc" mode. This allows direct connection without a router or hub.
Use your Network Wizard to connect thru your desktop to the internet.
