Is this what you have (where ... is wireless)?

Internet | +---------+ +---------+ +---------+ | Desktop |....| Wireless|....| Laptop | | | | Router | | | +---------+ +---------+ +---------+

If so, you need to turn on ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on the desktop, and turn off DHCP in the wireless router.

You could do without the wireless router if you set up an ad hoc wireless connection between the desktop and the laptop.

But why not connect the Internet to the wireless router, and connect the desktop to the wireless router either wired or wireless? That way ICS would not be needed, and the latptop could access the Internet even with the desktop turned off.
