Simple method would be to use USB to connect Tablet with PC and hopefully the tablet software will allow you to use PC's connection.
Somehow i know its hard to achieve even with mobile phones with android... where u simply cannot use usb for internet sharing... and need to use wifi instead.

So the typical way would be to buy a router with wifi, connect that RJ45 connector (from a modem?) to the router, connect router with rj45 cable to the PC (for stable connection) and use tablet within the local wifi network. At least thats the way I'm doing it at my household.

I personally have a 20$ TP Link myself... I'm only using Wifi for laptop, smart phones and tablet so i don't care how fancy it is. My PC is connected with an UTP RJ45 cable so there is a minimal ping as possible for multiplayer gaming.
Its working 4 years now and like 1 or 2 times per year there is some hangs and need of reset.. so i consider it good enough ;) 
I'm surprised your internet provider didn't supply modem/router with wifi already.. its a standard now.
I don't want to suggest anything... if its only to get your tablet a wifi than any router with a RJ45 port as a WAN input and some build in 4 port switch will do.
I guess one of the cheapest solution will be TL-WR740N.. its about 20$.
