Hi Everyone:

        I have just recently fixed a problem with a friend's pc.  Everything is working fine.  At this point, he is interested in testing his internet by taking his pc and connecting it to the wireless USB adapter currently occupied by another pc.  
Should we be concerned about anything getting offset?

        I look forward to hearing from everyone regarding this post.

        Thank you

        George

You should not have any issues.  Do you currently have some other type of networking?

Hi

       No, it is a simple LAN involving two pc's connecting to the internet through a wireless router.

>> in testing his internet by taking his pc and connecting it to the wireless USB adapter currently occupied by another pc.

May be you should rephrase as taking the wireless USB adapter from a different PC and putting it in the USB port of your friend's PC. Check if the wireless USB adapter is recognised by his computer and check if you can access internet from that machine

Post back if you have any concerns

I agree with everyone else, just make sure that you bring the driver for the wireless USB adapter with you.
