Is this Wireless Network Possible? 1x PCI card...

and 1x PCMCIA Laptop Card (both Wireless)?

I thought there had to be a router of some sort for it to work?! But the sales people at Staples told a couple of elderly friend of mine that they only needed the card in the PC and the card in the Laptop.

Now, if it is possible to network these two wireless in this fashion, where abouts do I start?

If not, tell me, and I'll need to have a word with Staples on behalf of some non techies :)

That configuration is fine, its a simple Ad-hoc (p2p) network rather than a managed network that would involve a router / server.

Rather than communication going via the router, each computer talks to each other directly.

Unfortunately I haven't setup an Ad-hoc network, so I don't know where to start.

That's an excellent start.

I just need some genius to give me some step by steps now.

The Cards are Belkin by the way, if that helps.
