Computer guru's - please help! I have a laptop (Sony Vaio) with a built in wireless card through Sprint. Question - can I somehow have my wife's work laptop link in through my laptop/Sprint service to get access to the web? It doesn't have to be wireless - just linking through a cable would be fine. Hope this makes sense - she uses a VPN to get on her work network and has to use her PC for access. We have a wireless network at home but are at my parents house for the week and they do not have internet access. Thanks!!

I think so! Let me look at this closer - but it looks like what I am trying to do! Thanks....

Beau is on it, you will need to do a wifi ad-hoc connection and the host PC will allow the guest to connect to the internet through it.
