    Hi. I have a notebook with WiFi port and main computer which connects to the internet through dsl cable modem. I bought wireless usb adapter (dwa-125) and though I could share internet connection of my main computer through that adapter.
    Now it seems to me that I am wrong. Adapters don't seem to be able to see each other. What are my options? Do i have to by some additional hardware?

    I use Win7 as a desktop computer (XP is also available) and I have lenovo notebook which hosts Win7 as well. Don't I need access point as well?

    So you are not using a router ? You will need a wifi router to get this to work right.. Or is your dsl cable modem a Modem/router or just a modem ? Does your notebook have a built in wifi card ?

    I got it working. WiFi port is built into notebook. I just created PPP connection and shared it on my desktop computer.
