Would it be possible to insert another wired network card into the router-connected computer, share the internet connection and be able to transfer files between the two? If so, how?

I am trying to connect to the internet via a wired connection on a computer which has not been connected to the Internet for some time (6 months?). I cannot browse the Internet and I am continually told that I am disconnected.
Priorly though, I have connected using this computer by wired connection with the very same router and network parameters.
So at first I was unable to get my Belkin Surf & Share usb to install on my computer, so then I plugged my computer directly into my router and my computer won't acknowledge any connection. I know very little about how to use ubuntu, please help me.
For the life of me, I can't figure this out. I had it working once in my network, but never after that.
I have two machines A (Win7-x64) and B (WinXP-x86), connected through TP-Link's TL-MR3420 Router (wired connections). Computer A has an EVDO device connected directly in a USB port and is connected to the Internet. Now I want to share this connection with machine B.
I just installed Kubuntu 12.04 on a new computer with an Asus motherboard containing onboard NIC. The onboard NIC is enabled in BIOS. I don't happen to have a spare network card to test with. The internet connection is via a D-Link router, either wired or wireless via T-Link USB wireless adapter. The internet connection works fine for other computers on the network (2 wired and 1 wireless).
My issue here is unique. There are times when I need to turn the router off while the computer is on. When I turn the router back on, with the computer still on, I want the machine to sense a connection and connect. This does not happen. I'd have to go to the computer, click about and get it connected.
I have had my Linux box connected to the internet through a windows computer by wiring them together with a cat5 cable then the windows is connected wirelessly to a router. This setup has worked since I got the Linux bot but just yesterday stopped working.
How does IPv4 Subnetting Work?
For example, I have a computer with a Network Inteface Card (NIC) which is an Ethernet card that is connected by Ethernet cables to a router. There is also another computer with a cable that is connected in another port of the router. This is a Belkin router operating over an Ethernet in the LAN.
I am trying to set it up so that I can either 1) have an ad hoc connection between my arch linux computer so I can stream music to the xbox and/or 2) Bridge a connection between the ethernet link between the xbox and computer...
