    I have a laptop running Vista and a ultra mobile pc running XP tablet. I have a Sprint EVDO connection card that connects USB and is my source for internet.

    I want to setup a wireless network from the laptop so I can surf the net on the tablet.

    I set up an ad-hoc on the laptop and was able to connect to it on the tablet but was unable to surf the internet although I followed the onscreen instructions which led me to believe that it was set up that way.

    So what do I need to do to make this work?

    Thanks :)
