Hello,
I use a DSL modem for Internet connection for my desktop. I have a laptop that I would like to share the DSL connection with. What do I need and how do I set it up?

You have multiple options to share Internet connection, have a look on following tutorials to decide the best option:

Get a wireless router and set up a wireless network

Get a wired Ethernet router and set up a wired network

Internet Connection Sharing in Microsoft windows

Hope this helps..

hi,

any option you choose will be BETTER than sharing it via WiFi adapters!
buy an access point or router.

Hello......

Yes..

Actually it is. I did this before the days of high speed access.
1: Install a modem (external or internal) and NIC in the main computer
2: Connect all computers to a switch and set up windows networking
3: Configure Windows ICS (internet connection sharing)
4: Configure your main computer to dial out everytime it detects an internet connection (using IE, this is under tools-->internet options-->connection)
