I have just set up a cobination similar to this.  Another item needed is 
your access point to bring you into the network.  If your needing others 
to look at your system, it'd be possible to do a peer-to-peer without 
needing an access point unit.  If you have your NIC plugged into their 
network you could also be the access point for other wireless too.  To 
do peer to peer they should all be set to "adhoc".
