Pal I would recommend you get a wireless adapter for your PC.



They are really cheap nowadays (anything from 5-30) and allot easier to set up than trying to use your laptop to connect

Roughly the same price pal. But you don't have to open your case to use the USB adapter

A wifi adapter (either USB or a PCI card) for your desktop should do the trick for you. You could setup a wired network between the two and then use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) to share the 'net. The problem with that would be that the desktop would only have internet access when the laptop is running and connected to the internet. Adding a wifi adapter to the desktop will allow it to connect independently.
