    do i need an access point card to enable wireless networking, or do i only
    need a wireless pcmcia card for the laptop and a pci card for the pc?

    the laptop will be used to access the internet when the pc is running (pci

    Depends on your equipment but it should work in most cases. Your nics
    will have to be set to "ad hoc" mode. Also you can bridge the
    adapters (wireless nic and modem) in your internet machine to
    facilitate a connection to the internet from the laptop.
