    Wireless internet Sharing help

    Hi Guys,
    I need some help. I have Blueyonder cable internet which comes in on an ethernet cable through a modem to my PC. I have installed a seperate wireless card today so I can share the internet with my laptop which has a wireless card built in. I can't seem to set up a home network. Does anyone have any ideas on what I should be doing?

    You need to make sure the 2 wifi cards are connected in `ad-hoc` mode, and both on the same SSID.
