If I understand you correctly, you can by making your Ubuntu 12.10 machine as a DHCP server.

To install DHCP server, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install isc-dhcp-server

For information, and how to, see here or here
