Hello,
Would appreciate if anyone can offer a solution to this problem.

I have a laptop with a wireless network card and wireless LAN connected to the internet on windows vista. I have just changed ISP to orange from talk talk and therefore have 2 wireless modems.
I mainly use the laptop but would like to link a PC on XP up to the internet.
I figured I could link the old wireless modem router to the new wireless modem router to get internet access on the PC - is this possible with equipment I have? How can this be done?

Setup:
Laptop: Windows Vista, wireless modem Netgear Modem Router linked wirelessly to laptop on Wireless LAN.
PC: Windows XP, wireless modem router, but no wireless LAN.

Thanks in advance.

Using two modem/routers will not work as you intend.
