    If the wireless LAN USB adapter is what I believe it is you can use it on one of the pc's if your current LAN Modem/Router has wireless capabilities (usually will have 1 or 2 antenna) on the back. If not you would need a wireless router to have wireless capabilities.

    ** You will have to purchase a Wireless Router then to have the wireless capabilities you are wanting.

    You can get one on-line or at almost any store that sells computer equipment (Best Buy, Office Max, etc)

    if your internet modem is only a lan modem and is not wireless capable than it wont be possible to use the usb wireless adapter so you will have to purchase a usb wireless router...

    When setting up the wireless remember to select the adhoc connection button
