I wrote up a comprehensible method of doing this using what is known as 
"masquerading". I don't know what a "wireless cable" is exactly, but I 
will try to help you anyhow. I had this setup going for a few months 
until I got a router, I just set up scripts to run these command every 
time I wanted to turn on the sharing to my 2nd computer.

 From what I understand you want this setup:
(Wifi AP/Router) ) ) ) ) (wifi0|-laptop-pc1-|eth0)=====(eth0|-pc2-)

If this is the case, it shouldn't be too hard to replicate what I did.

Good luck, hope it helps!
