How is it possible to share my network connection from a wired network via wireless. This means, I'm connected to a network using a wired cable but want to share the internet to all users accessing my wireless.

you need a wireless router.

I don't think so. It's possible in windows...

It is possible: The first wireless accessory I purchased was a USB device based on the Zydas chipset, and has an option to be used as an access point which I used from within Windows to share my desktop's internet connection with my laptop.

EDIT: The retailer I purchased it from no longer stocks it, but has a support page here (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/48e4a6d100b386aa273fc0a87f3b0756/Export/catalogs/SUPXH4304).

You can do it quite easily if your wireless card supports ad-hoc or master mode. Just google around a bit with name of module that your wireless card uses.
