Does any one know if you can connect two computers over a simple peer to peer set up using a PCI Wireless Network card installed on the desktop PC and WiFi Installed or a PCMIA Wireless card on a laptop or do you need a wireless hub and router?

Most wireless cards (PCMCIA and PCI) should allow that.

Its called "ad-hoc networking"

Check the specs of the card to see if thats supported.

The range will be somewhat shorter in general, when compared to a Wireless Airpoint Hub arrangement.
