Wireless Newtwork card

Wireless Newtwork card

(OP)
Hi i am thinking of setting up a wirless network. I have a laptop and a desk top pc. I want to connect the laptop to the PC so as to share its resources.

Is it only the laptop that needs a specialised wireless network card or would the PC aswell or can the PC just have a standard network card installed?

thanks

RE: Wireless Newtwork card

Both would need a wireless adapter.

What you are trying to achieve is an "ad hoc" connection between two wireless workstations.
