So your Desktop is connected to the Access Point or wireless router via
ethernet I assume. Go to your desktop and run ifconfig
On my box it's:
mars:/home/micxz # ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:XX:xx:XX:xx:XX
inet addr:10.10.10.1 Bcast:10.10.10.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
So you can see the (Server/Desktop) IP is 10.10.10.1.
Your wireless card gets it (Client/Laptop) IP from here:
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
THE IP's I USED ABOVE ARE JUST EXAMPLES. Hope this helps;
