Wireless ethernet bridge

I have an Xbox 360 and would like to connect it onto my network, but wired is not an option (old house extremely difficult to wire).  And I do not want to spend a C note on a xbox proprietary wireless adapter, or a bunch on a Wireless Ethernet bridge.  I was wondering if there is anyway to take the wireless I have on my PC (I have a WMP54G card) and turn it into wired to connect to my Xbox 360.  I have two Ethernet ports on my mobo (EVGA 680i).  The setup I would like is Wireless to my WMP54G and then turn it into wired from my mobo to my xbox 360. Thanks.

P.S.  I tried googling it, all I got was a bunch of Wireless Ethernet Bridges for sale sights.

Plug your xbox into your PC's ethernet port and use ICS to share your PC's wireless connection.

or:

Get a router which allows you to use its wireless as a WAN connection and just cable in your PC and XBox.

It would be better (and probably easier) to bridge the two network connections. Personally, I wouldn't trust windows with such a task and would get a hardware device to achieve the same out come (i.e. a wireless - weired bridge).

Any the wiser? ;)

Yeah, but if I had to get the bridge, I might as well get the wireless xbox 360 connection since the price wouldn't be that much different.
