Wireless in, ethernet out to router?

This may be a stupid question...But my Fedora Core 3 computer gets internet connection through a wireless card. On this computer there is also a built in Ethernet port. I was wondering if it were possible to forward the connection out that ethernet port and to a router.

Sorry if thats hard to understand...Im not sure how to say it

What I have now is PHONELINE IN -> 2Wire 1800HG modem/router -> wireless card on my computer

What i want to add is

My computer eth0 -> router -> Sony PS2 and other devices using ethernet

sorry if this is a stupid request

Basically you want to turn your computer into a bridge, which should be doable, though I don't have the docs on hand.

But for a start, know that it is very doable
