You'll need to set up an ad-hoc network between the 2 machines. All (OK,
don't quote me on this) wifi adapters have this sort of functionallity.
In this mode (as opposed to infrastructure mode) the 2 wifi cards
communicate with each other directly - no access point.

Hope this Helps

All client devices I know of allow this, and it is called Ad Hoc mode

You just have to think up an SSID and make sure you put the same on both
cards
(it's like a network identifier)
Also, make sure WEP encryption is disabled on both, until you get
connectivity

Also, put in manual IP addresses
192.168.0.1 for the internet pc
192.168.0.2 for the other one

When on 192.168.0.2 you can "ping 192.168.0.1", you know your hardware is
working and within range, etc... now you can play with dhcp, blah balhaba
wep etc.
