Hi, i am trying to create a wireless network with my XP lap top and 2K PC. My setup has the following features:

The lap top :Ethernet adapter installed internally

PC: external USB D-Link Wireless 2.4GHz adapter installed onto my PC
drivers are installed for this but i don't know how to connect it with the lap top.

Is this all i need to create the wireless network? Any help appreciated, thanks.

altho it is possible to set them up like that id advise u use a hub because otherwise it could be touch and go and generally very temperamentle its touch and go also it is very insecure, so in my experiance its well worth splashing out abit on the hub.
