I use a Belkin usb wireless on my laptop. Love the gizmo, hate the software. Just load the usb drivers, let xp do the rest. As for your desktop I use D-Link. The 510 pci card works great and you can swap out antennas if you need to, The usb doesn't give you that option.
You could also use a pcmcia card in the lappy but they cost more. Make sure your router is programmed correctly.

if your PC comes inbuilt with an wireless adapter then no requirement. if not then you would need a wireless adapter in order to communicate with the router. The wireless adapter will comunicate with the Router.
