Ok I have a pc which connects to internet through network card + router.

My wife has got a new laptop through work, it has wireless capability. How can I connect it to my pc to connect to the internet - I want to use my pc as a server.

The router ISN'T wireless.

Ok the router isn't wireless. Can I put a receiver of some sort into my wired router so that the laptop can connect with it and then set up my lan as you described above?

Why not just replace the wired router with a wireless model? They also have wired ports, it's the best of both worlds. Also, many deals exist on wireless routers, so they'll be cheaper than a wireless access point.
