I just hooked up my laptop via Ad-hoc to my PC which is connected to my "wired" router. Simply enabled internet connection sharing and set up the laptop and PC for Ad-hoc mode on their wireless cards. Put the WAN DNS settings in for the wireless card on the PC, setup for DHCP on the laptop and voila internet. No additional wireless router required. Kind of neat. Runs fast too.

ICS if flaky in general, the host machine has to be on for this to work, and you lose several features you get on dedicated AP's, not the least of which deals with security. Other than that windows Internet Connection Sharing is GREAT! :)
