Or a third option would to buy a Wireless router to connect to your Cable
Modem. Buy a wireless PCMCIA card for your laptop and Buy a wireless USB or
PCI adapter for your desktop. This can allow you more freedom if you want to
place the desktop somewhere there is not a cable connection close by to the
desktop.

The best way to do this is to get a wireless router/gateway. Your cable
modem would connect to the WAN port on the router and your desktop would
connect to one of the ports. Your laptop would, obviously, connect
wirelessly to the router. The router/gateway provides the necessary DHCP
options to connect the systems together and also connect to the internet.

The other way would be to acquire a PCI wireless card for your desktop. In
this fashion, you would enable ICS on the desktop (with the cable modem
connecting to the wired-NIC on the desktop) and connect the laptop to the
desktop wirelessly.

same.
