The problem is that I'm too lazy to buy a wireless network card for my stationary computer that I'm going to use on my room with no wired network. So I'm looking for how to use my laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 as a wireless to wired network converter, sorta. :eek:

I know how to use a laptop as a "wire to wireless" network converter, but in my case, I need the opposite.

I think I'll need a crossed network cable between my ubuntu laptop and my stationary computer (that's the one I'm aiming to get internet onto), but I don't have a crossed one, can I use a switch instead?

Just to make it all clear of what I mean:
