    Hi,
    I have a WiFi enabled laptop and I have cable broadband by means of an ethernet cable into the back of my PC. I also have a spare wireless USB dongle. What I was wondering was whether or not it is possible to plug the USB dongle into my PC and get my Laptop to access the internet and resources from my PC using it. If it is possible how do I go about it? I have Vista on both my Laptop and PC.

    Thanks.
