networking with access to internet using FR114P print server

Hi I wonder if someone may be able to give some pointers. I have a local network of two computers running ubuntu connected via a Netgear FR114P . I also have one of the computers connected wifi to the internet. Can I get on the internet from the alternate computer via the network ?? Some assistance is appreciated as I am a relative newcomer to this area.

You should really try connecting your router to internet.. Check on your wifi router for lan connectors and try connecting second computer there.

To get connection directly from internet connected computer is a bit more difficult. It would be called something like "internet sharing"

Thanks, but that is not an option as the internet connection is remote and is available via wifi only.
Thanks for your reply
