Thank you both Tom and Barb for responding.
2 Thinkpads, 1 setup with Windows Vista Ultimate, the other with Windows
Vista Business. Both are using Linksys WPC55AG dual-band Wireless Notebook
I have used the wizard that is in Network and Sharing Center->Setup a
connection or network->Set up a wireless router or network. I have been
through the wizard which I believe will setup the host as router. First, It
asks for a USB Flash Drive to write data to. Then it asks for the name and
the one suggested is the original name of the "host" with "_Network" added to
it. I left the default. Next, is the paraphrase, I used the default. For
printer file and printer sharing, I used "allow anyone with access to
network". Then it tells you to remove it and connect to the second computer.
A dialog box comes up with the option to run the Wireless Network Setup
Wizard. I used it and it asks if I want to join the "network". I said OK
and it states that I am connected to the "network". At this point I am a bit
stumped because there are no network resources to use and nothing appears
that belongs to the other system.
I don't know if I have done something to interfere with the connectivity, so
I am performing a clean install on both systems.
