    I have 2 computers
    one is connected directly to internet with a classic rj45 cable. it has a usb wireless dongle too (ralink)

    Of course it is possible. How to do it? I don't know. The computer with the wired connection needs to be set up in Master or Access Point Mode. There may be another way to do it. Perhaps with both computers in Ad-hoc mode. I know it can be done but I have never tried it. I do not have the equipment.
