    laptop connects to AP wirelessly for internet...
    desktop is out of range of the AP
    but within wireless range of laptop...

    can i give the desktop a USB wireless adapter
    and connect to laptop AD HOC
    and maybe bridge the AP and AD HOC connections on laptop and use ICS
    in order to achieve internet connectivity on desktop ???

    both machines running XP

    thanks,
    mike.

  2. Hi

    If three is a routing mechanism before the laptop you can Bridge.
    Otherwise, use ICS.

    thanks...

    no, no routing mechanism...
    and now i'm starting to think it is not a possibility
    for the laptop to be simultaneously connected to both the
    AP & the desktop if it has only the one wireless adapter ???
