I have a laptop1 which has its two interfaces ( wired and wireless ) working. And have another laptop (laptop2) for which only wired interface works.

I am planning to connect the two wired interfaces such that laptop2 can connect to internet through the wireless interface of laptop1. Any suggestions on how to achieve this? Both systems use Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop edition
