you will need a wireless network card to plug in your desktop computer.

Hi, you don't need anything. Your laptop and desktop are now connected to the same network. You just have to enable file sharing on both computers. If you want your desktop to connect wirelessly you can add a network card and you can still do file sharing that way.
all i want to be able to do is file share from my laptop that is wieless to my desktop that is plugged into my router.i have already chose files to share on each computer but each computer cant see the other one.
Hi. My fujitsu laptop (Li3710) is very very slow when connected to my wireless network (adsl line). The modem is connected to my desk top. How can I solve this problem on the laptop. All applications just get extremely slow the moment I switch on the wireless.
