Wired and wireless problem

Hello, I have a laptop (windows 7) connected wirelessly to the internet. I have a pc (vista) without a wireless card so I want to connect it via a wire to the laptop to get internet. I have done this but I cannot figure out how to get the internet.

|Vista|___wire___|7|->> <<-|Router|

It is not possible to connect the pc directly to the router.
