How to share a wired internet connection via Wifi?

I have a PC which connects to the Internet via wifi. However, my ISP only allows one PC to connect to the Internet at the same time.

Also, I have a wireless router, so I want to connect this router to my laptop and share my Internet connection via this router.

Is there any way I can do that?

It is very easy. You connect to the wireless network as normal. Then select the wired network connection, and in the IPv4 settings, select "Method: Shared with other computers".

Now your wireless connection will be shared on the wired one. Connect your router, and it will share it with other computers in your network.
