Share Wifi Via Ethernet

I have my laptop connected to my router via Wifi, and my machine downstairs only has an ethernet port. If i connect my laptop downstairs can i share the wifi connection to my pc via a ethernet cable?

Ive foudn some posts and question about this before but none have worked.

My laptop has Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and my machine has Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

If anyone can help that would be great.

PS: I dont wana buy anything new as that machine wont be there forever, i just want a quick free temporary way of doing this.

Thanks

Yes, you can share your wifi. It's called ICS.

Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

you are going to have to buy an Ethernet cable if you don't have a spare one lying around.
so, if you don't have one, you are SOL since you stated you don't want to buy anything new.
