my friend and i are having an argument. he doesnt believe that if you get a wireless network card for his home computer that he will not be able create a wireless network with it because you need an access point. does a wireless network card access as an access point?

meaning can you connect 2 computers that have wireless network cards together directly or do you need something like a router

Yes, you can connect two wireless NIC's together using adhoc mode, rather than infrastructure (which is used to connect to access points, like routers). It's relatively easy, and will allow the two computers to communicate normally.
