You could do this by configuring the NICs on your PC and laptop in ad-hoc
mode. Here are the steps for doing it (should be done on both machines)
Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Right Click on Wireless
Connection -> Properties -> Wireless Connections tab -> Advanced -> Check
"Computer-to-computer ad-hoc networks only". Click "Close".
You will then need to configure one of your machines with an SSID to
broadcast. Once this is done, you should be able to associate to the SSID
and have your machines connected in ad-hoc mode.
