Sharing a dial-up is going to be slow, at times you may have both computers downloading and that will slow down the internet. Plus you'll need a wireless card for the desktop or a wireless router. Can't get DSL or Cable?

No, even a wireless b at 11mpbs is WAY faster than a 56kbps dial up connection.

Wireless routers are faster than high speed connections. You shouldn't have any trouble. You can get bottlenecking from big downloads on both machines, however

Just in case you get comfused by telegramsam's post. The network might connect at 11mbps, 54mbps or 100mbps but that does not mean your internet is. I have 54mbps wireless and a 100mbps wired computer for instance. The internet speed doesn't differ on each because the network is quicker than the internet connection.
