My Windows 7 laptop connects to the network via WIFI. I also have a wired connection to my Linux box. Can I configure the laptop so that traffic from the Linux box is routed through the wired connection on the laptop to it's WIFI connection?

TY, Fred

Yes you can create a network bridge between both network connections.

Make sure you select both connections by holding down the control key and clicking on them. Depending on your network adapter, you may also have to use a crossover cable between your Linux box and Windows PC for connectivity.
