Yes. What you are looking for is a Wireless Broadband Router/Access Point.

I suggest Netgear's FM114PNA:

You will also need wireless network adapters on each computer.

For the laptop, you'll probably want a PCMCIA card:

Or a USB adapter:

Did that answer your question?

Bannerman is correct, what your looking for is an 802.11b or WiFi broadband router, you will also need a compatible network card for each machine
