    Hi
    I have the internet connected running from my wired router to 2 computers in my house, one of which has a wireless card that is not being used. Is there a way i can hook up a wireless connection from this card to my laptop? It's a pain in the ass having to work in my room which is in an isolated part of my house. I've tried Ad-Hoc but i cannot get an internet connection on my laptop but the signal will only go from the laptop to the desktop and not to the internet. Any insight would be greatly appreciated thank you. :)

    I must think wireless card isn't enough unless you'ved purchased wireless router which provides signal for your wireless card. then after install a right driver for your wireless LAN and try to observed if it detects some signal
