Hi, I considering buying a WIFI (802.11B) PC card for my portable and a WIFI PCI card for my desktop. Can I operate both cards in "ad hoc" mode to get file sharing and internet sharing for both computers?  I have a dialup modem on my desktop and would like to share the internet with the desktop and portable.  The portable has Windows XP and the desktop has Windows ME. Can I use the ICS capability contained in Windows ME and XP to get me internet sharing using WIFI?

Yes rdeleon1 if both computers have one Wireless NIC card you can:

1.- Transmit and share information between both (like a wired LAN)
2.- Make One of them a server o gateway (ICS) to the other computer can access to internet.

You only must check that you have the last drivers for the Wireless NICs.

Ciao.
