Is there any software out there which can use the cable broadband, which is going into my computer and make it go out wireless with my wifi, so I can use laptops throughout the house?

If you have Windows then Internet Connection Sharing will do this. (Older XP Article on ICS.)

Windows has Internet Connection Sharing built in, and Mac OS X has a similar facility. Just google it, no additional software required.

As others have said, you can just add a USB Wifi stick to your PC and share your internet connection. The laptops will be able to pick up the Wifi from the PC and route through that.

Add the stick, then right click on your wired network connection to share it.
