    I have a desktop that is on its last legs and this is
    where I initially setup my MN-500 Base station via
    ethernet. I have three laptops, two running MN-520
    Adapters and one new laptop with it's own integrated
    wireless wifi internal. Can I get rid of my desktop and
    run the whole thing off of one of the laptops?
    Additionally, I can see all of the computers that are
    running Microsoft adapters in the Microsoft Broadband
    Network Utility, but cannot see my new computer which has
    it's own internal wifi adapter?

    No problem. Just load the Broadband Network Utility on
    any of the PC's on your LAN.
    On your new PC just remember, your workgroup name is not
    the same as your wireless network name, they are
    different settings. Make sure your new computer's
    workgroup name is correct. Check it at - control panel -
    system - computer name - change - and enter
    your "Workgroup" name.

    Actually, if the chosen machine is Windows XP, you don't need to install the
    front-end software (BNU) at all. The base station can be managed through
    the browser by simply typing in the IP address in the Address line. The
    base station doesn't need any modification of settings when a new machine is
    added to the LAN, unless it is filtering by MAC address.
