How can i create a network bridge in Ubuntu?


Hello guys,

I'm really new to Ubuntu, and i want to create a network bridge on it.
Ubuntu is installed on my Laptop and i am on a wireless network with it.
I want to plug in a LAN-cable in my laptop, and the other end of the LAN-cable in my PC. I want it that i can have internet on my pc, using the wireless network of my laptop.
I have absolutely no idea how to do this. I know how to do it in Windows, and yes i have Windows on my laptop as well, but since Windows is horrible it bugged (AGAIN!). I'm kinda pissed off now, because Windows failed again.
If anyone could help me, it would be great

Thanks.

well, the link I posted above should end your googling, I have already tested that method and it works just fine!

by the way, my search criteria were "ubuntu share wifi eth" in google.com and that was the 2nd link..
