Question Question Regarding Sharing Between Desktop & Laptop

Both OS's: Win 7

Foreword: Forgive me for being so networking naive!

I currently have a desktop which receives an an internet connection through a secured wireless network, however I've a port for an Ethernet cable hookup as well; and a hub laying around. I have a laptop which only has Ethernet cable hookups and no wireless would like to also access the net with. Is it possible for me to share my current connection from my desktop to the laptop using Ethernet cables and the spare hub? If possible could someone elaborate or link me to a guide as to how I may accomplish this task? Thank you for your time and any help in this matter!
