Your request is an advanced topic but can be done.

You would need to setup ICS [internet connection sharing] on your pc between the wired and wireless nic.

Additionally to get ics to work you need to have the wired nic at and the other 4 pcs will have to have static ips in the same range. This means you have to disable dhcp server on the router and change its lan access port [gateway] to something like

If you find that ICS is not useful because it limits your ip or needs two nics consider analogx's proxy.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
