argh my pretty ascii art wont work :(

anyways, you can just make a gateway with one of your computers by adding 3 nics to it.

nic1----> modem
nic2---->2nd computer
wireless nic-----> laptop

well, first thing you need is a wireless router.
then you need a wireless 802.11 pcmcia card for your lappy. last but not least you need 3 cat5 cables (not crossover). one going from the cable/dsl modem to the router and the other two from the router to the two pc's. using windows xp i don't think there's any settings to set except for the pcmcia card for which you might need to install the supplies drivers. check office depot, in my area they have a current deal where you can get a d-link 802.11 card for 29.95 after like 2 rebates...

From what I read, I'll assume he is on a dialup modem. (Unless he is using a USB cable/dsl router/modem).. in that case you'll want a wireless access point and switch/hub in one box. I know they sell them.

no...i have a cable connection. pc 1 is the main gateway. pc 2 is connected with crossover cable. in the gateway, there are two nics...can i add the wireless card to the gateway and use that as an access point?... if so, how would i set up ip addresses and such?

ps. i want to avoid buying extra routers as i do not have money, can i do this with what i already have?

You can get this going by installing an 802.11 card in your gateway. Setup WiFi on both devices as Ad-Hoc and not Infrastructure and make sure SSID matches on both devices. Give the laptop an IP address on the same subnet as the rest of your computers and use the IP address of the ICS interface on the gateway computer as the Default Gateway.
