Internet tunneling

I have a belkin wireless (usb) adaptor on my home pc which allows my laptop which has inbuilt wireless to connect to each other. My home pc has broadband, i was wondering if it is possible for my laptop to tunnel through my pc internet connection so that i can use both my pc and my laptop on the internet at the same time, with out having to buy a wireless router.
Both use xp home edition

Yes , you need to set up a wireless peer to peer network . Go into Network connections on your computer that is connected to the Internet and run the Network Setup Wizard , the run the same on your Laptop , you can get Windows to assign a WEP key ( peer to peer cannot use anything else ) and make a note of it , then run the same Wizard on the laptop , you should be able to see the network wirelessly on each PC , enter the WEP key on the laptop when asked then you should be able to connect to the Internet and , if you turned on file and print sharing , be able to share files as well . Try that and come back here if you run into troubles .


it took me a while but i managed to do it. Plus i didnt have to spend £40 on a router.
