Is there a way or easy to use software that can be installed on Windows XP Pro, that will make it a reverse WAP? Meaning, that the Wireless Adapter in the PC will get the Internet from an existing wireless router, and then be able to pass that Internet to another PC or Xbox device through it's WIRED LAN adapter? The PC has a wireless adapter and a wired adapter. Thanks

That would be "Internet Connection Sharing".  The wired would have to be point-to-point with the other device meaning not connected to the router but only the device.  I've never actually set that up since my network goes every where here but it is possible.

This page tells how to do it with another computer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126  If you can set the TCP/IP settings on your other device, you can connect them too.  It doesn't look like you will have automatic IP address assignment so you will have to be able to set it manually.
