This is my setup: Ubuntu PC connected via Ethernet connection to a LAN that has internet connection has a WIFI stick, (the router does not have WIFI support)

Windows 8 Laptop with ONLY WIFI (no Ethernet port).

This is what I need: I want to configure my Ubuntu (precise 12.04) PC to share the internet coming from my Ethernet connection, via the WIFI stick, to the windows 8 laptop.

Secondary objective: Eventually, I want the laptop to behave as if it is connected directly to my router (have internet connection obviously, maybe get ip from the router's DHCP, interact with other LAN computers, etc...)
