I have a desktop computer that has no wireless internet connection, and a laptop with wireless internet connection. I want to know how I can bridge the connection between my desktop computer to my laptop, so that both can surf the internet. I've heard the bridging the connection works, but when I tried, it didn't work. I'm almost sure that I did something wrong, as I had no idea what i was doing at the time. Both computers are running Win XP right now, if that's any help.

Any help anyone could give would be great!!!!!
