Now you need to change the Gateway option to Router. When you do that is will reconize you notebook as the deault gateway to the internet instead of it's self.
Personally I would not have used a router in this case. I would have used a switch or hub instead and used the notebook as my router. Use the XP New Connection Wizard to connect to your notebook from your desktop.
Edit:You can also set your wireless cards, on both your notebook and desktop, in "ad hoc" mode to connect them. This is equal to a crossover cable for a wireless connection. In "ad hoc" mode the computer looks for a peer to peer connection verse a LAN.

First off lets get your setup correct....
You have a modem that conects to a router (WRT54G).
You have a Laptop that is connecting to the router via a wireless broadcast. (need the Manufactures name and model)
You have a desktop that cannot connect to the internet at all?
1. Please correct any of the above to better clarify your situation, or just reply "Yes" if it is correct?
Then we need to know if im understanding what your wanting to do....
Does this mean that you want to remove the card from the laptop and put it into the desktop?
so the desktop can get online useing the laptop card
Does this mean that you want to use ICS and an ethernet bridge?
Does this mean that you dont know what your trying to do and you just want both PC's to be able to connect to the internet, with whatever hardware they already have?
2. Please pick one of the above three options for your network?

ok I have a laptop that uses a connection card in the PCMCIA adapter from sprint to get online. I have a linksys WRK54G wireless router, that the laptop is connected to wirelessly. I have a desktop that is also connected to the same router, via an eithernet cable. I want to use the router to get the desktop online thru the card. I have been on the phone talking to idiots from sprint, linksys and some general computer folks... I am loseing my mind. No one seems to understand what I am trying to do.
Please help me if at all possiable! Also if you need anymore info I have it all

I want to use the router to get the desktop online thru the card.
Im not sure if i'm following you, but I think maybee your wanting to use the router as a ethernet bridge from the desktop to gain internet access through the the pcmia card in the laptop.. is that right?
Meaning you are using the pcmia card as your internet provider through like sierra wireless or some other wireless carrier?
If this is correct I dont think you can use your router for that purpose... while im waiting for you to answer that i'll find out for sure.... I cheat.... I work for an ISP and can call a linksys rep directly

Or, you could directly connect the desktop and the laptop, either through an ad-hoc wireless or a crossover cable, and use ICS.

or you'd have to set up an AD-HOC wireless network and set up ICS..
the most effective way (in this situation) to make an AD-HOC wireless setup would be for you to get awireless card for the desktop and take the router out of the situation (unless you're wanting to use that internet as well...which i don't thik you are)...this would basically be doing the exact same thing as wiring your pc to the laptop...and ICS would solve the issue of having one ip on the line (theoretically)
