Is it possible to provide a wired ethernet connection to external devices with an extra LAN card?

I'm trying to provide a wired ethernet connection (wireless is not an option for this device) to a device (Samsung blu-ray player) without running Cat5 cable all over the home. I have a PC sitting next to this device and the PC is connected to the network via a wireless USB adapter.

"Step by step Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) setup in Vista

works pretty much the same way in Windows 7, use 192.168.0.1 (255.255.255.0) for the Windows 7 LAN connection and use 192.168.0.2 (255.255.255.0) with 192.168.0.1 as gateway and DNS server for the bluray player."
