U have to make sure both of the pc's have wireless adapters, either inside on a pce slot or external usb. Ur going to set up ur own little home network so both pc's can use the wireless router for internet access.Source(s): been there and done that

One wireless DSL modem will do. Yes, you can connect both computers to the internet with this one modem. I'm guessing your desktop would be your gateway computer and a laptop would be your remote. Try the wireless network setup wizard in the control panel if you already have a wireless card in your laptop.

No. You need a wireless router for that. I would recommend ditching the wireless dsl modem, and gettting a regular modem, and a regular router. Or you could disable the wireless on the dsl modem, and get a router to do that instead.

the wireless DSL modems most of the time come with four ethernet ports for wired connections and a wireless connection for as many computers as you want.

if its wireless then its a modem and router combination. You can connect the other PCs wirelessly or use a wire to plug into ports 1,2,3 or 4.
