Connect to the net via my laptop.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Just wondering if anyone can help me out.


I've got 2 computers, my laptop and my desktop. Unfortunately the wireless card in my desktop (running XP) is not particularly strong and as such the net runs really slow on it. However the card in my laptop must be alot better as it has a 'Very Good' connection strength. I'm just wondering if its possible to connect my desktop to my laptop and run the internet on the desktop via my laptops wireless card..

The laptop has better reception because laptop uses the screen as part of the antennae.

Yep so if your desktop card is internal get a high gain antenna on a short fly lead so you can put the antenna up above the case.
