    i'd like to have just a simple wireless 10baseT connection w/ ics between my desktop and laptop? so i can set on the bed and use the printer connected to the desktop and logon to the internet thru ics cause i dont use dsl or cable. i'm told this is inpossible w/out dsl or other broadband.

    rofl, no this is posable, I did this at a friends house with dial up so we could get our steam accounts working.

    all you have to do is tell your laptop an ip, use the default subnet mask, and use the dns as the other computer's ip. that should do it, if i remeber correctly
