Yes, you can use a crossover Ethernet cable and then bridge the connection between the wireless and wired network on the laptop just using Windows 7 "Network Connections."
And if both have gigabit lan connectors, you should be able to just use a straight Ethernet cable since gigabit auto-senses.
Here are the steps to configure:
Connect the Ethernet crossover cable to both computers.
Go to Network Connections Control Panel on computer with Internet access.
Right click on the network connection that has Internet access
Select the sharing tab
Check the box that says "Allow other network users . . . ." Then click ok to close.
Open your browser on the computer without wireless access and give it some time to connect.
