wireless connection between gateway

Specs: Windows XP home ed., dual3700+ 3g ddr
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
I have a telus wireless gateway with a laptop connnected wireless.
At the other end of the house, I have 2 more pc's, 1 is connected with a wireless adapter. ,The third doesn't have wireless capibilities.
The way the building is laid out, running an ethernet cable is not an option. I'm talking down a flight of stairs , through a couple rooms and the garage, up another flight of stairs etc. Running it externally wouldn't be much better.
I understand i should simply go buy a wireless adapter for the third pc but I'm completely tapped, unemployed, disabled and waiting till the 17th for my second hip replacement.
I do have a dlink wireless router(dsl604+) aswell as the wireless gateway.
My question is ,
Is it possible to make a wireless connection between the gateway and router (both are wireless) and then use an ethernet between the router and the third pc??(wifes comp.)
If not , what would be a good way to connect her pc to my pc with a cable and share my wireless internet connection??
Both pc's are runing xphome edition sp3. I also have a DSLcable router
This would mean having 2 network connections on my pc,
one wireless to the gateway, and an ethernet to the cable router/her pc.
I'm not sure if this is possible and please excuse my ignorance.

Again ,thanks in advance for any help/suggestions/ideas/tips/enlightenment,etc.

We call that wireless bridging and dlinks from my experience don't support that.

You may wish to consider internet connection sharing [google it] to establish a connection between the two computers so the one can use the others wireless internet connection.
