    Though I am not so good at networking, let me give it a shot. You will need following hardware.

    1 X Plugi-in WiFi card for your desktop
    1 X Wireless router (to share your internet connection)

    Install the WiFi card on your desktop (including the s/w). Plug in the internet cable to wireless router. Then turn on the dektop and laptop and see if that detects the wireless network or not. This is very basic. You can certainely make your network much more secure than this.

    Seniors please dont blow me away if I am wrong. :twisted:

    The above method is the right one. Go for netgear routers if u dont have one....too easy to setup
