Hi Everyone,

I have a PC with a dial-up connection. I want to set up Internet Connection Sharing (Share my dial-up connection). My second system is a laptop with wireless ability, I want to put a wireless card in my PC and set the laptop to connect to my PC sharing the dial-up connection! Currently both are wired together using a crossover cable.

Will wireless work the same as if they were wired together directly using a crossover cable? If anyone has any tips I'd appreciate them. And does ad hoc have to be set??

Please help,
Timone.

Yes, but speed and reliability can be less.

Get the wireless connection working. Then enable encryption.

Yes; wireless ad-hoc means computer to computer(s) with no router or server involved.
