    Ok here goes..
    I now have 3 computers working on a wired HPNA router. I also have a laptop that goes from one of the computers with just an outgoing nic using ICR on the desktop one to the laptop.Is it possiblt to put a wireless router coming out of the desktop (using the already existing 2nd NIC card there) so that I could use the laptop as wireless?

    so basically I'm asking if I could replace the existing wired connection going from my desktop to the laptop and replace it with a wireless router...

    Would make more sense to replace your main router with a Wireless capabale router or just get an access point in order to add wireless capability to your current one.

    You can get a router that has a switch built into it along with the wireless. ;)
