Set up a computer connecting through my laptop to be on the same network as the laptop

I have a desktop PC which currently has no wireless. My home network is a wireless network. I have it successfully connected to my network through my laptop (with built in wireless) using Ubuntu's Shared network option. However, this leaves it with an IP address 10.42.x.x . I would like to get it onto the main 10.0.0.x network so computers on that network other than my laptop can access. It would preferably have a static IP address as well.

"Wouldn't it just be easier to purchase a wireless network card than trying to make the desktop work with a laptop shared network connection? The time you spend trying to get the machine setup that way could well be spent on other things.

Good luck on your project."
