Yeah you can do that.. It is called ICS.. you need to have 2 pieces of ethernet cable.  and the computer that has wireless you need to have a NIC.

To do this.. connect the wireless computer to the router into port #1.  NOT WAN!

Connect computer #2 to port #2.

Then go to network connection folder.  right click the wireless card and choose properties.  Then select advanced.. enable Internet Connectio Sharing.  This will assign an ip address to computer #2 and share the internet with that computer.  You are going to have to have the wireless computer on to have the internet on the other computer.  You also have to make sure that the NIC on computer #2 is on obtain ip address automatically and not static assigned!

Let me know if you need more help!
