Alright, so I wasreally looking forward to watching an anime on the big screen (acomputer I built) well,the motherboard turned out not to have wireless capability. Can I plug my vGa from my lsaptop with wireless internet access to this desktop? Will I be able to watch this anime on the desktop screen using laptop internet?

Thank you!

If your laptop has a ethernet port you can plug it directly into your desktop, Or even easier through a hub/switch/router and setup internet connection sharing through on the laptop side.

If you connect up directly from laptop ethernet port to desktop ethernet port, You would have to set up your TCP/IP settings manually. Little arduous for the uninitiated.

Honestly the easier thing is to just go buy a $10-$20 USB wifi card, And be done with it, But it can be solved numerous different ways..
