Connecting computer wirelessly but still using ethernet

Hi, I am wondering if this is possible:

I have a wireless router in the top floor of my house.

My computer will be in my basement, and no ethernet is wired.

My computer does not support many wireless adapters, and the ones supported are expensive. It does, however, have an ethernet port and built in LAN 10/100/1000 Mbps chipset.

Is there any product that I could use to;
1. Connect to my wireless network.
2. Plug it into my computer using ethernet.
3. Have internet.

I have only 802.11 b/g, so I know at most I'll only have 54Mbps. I know this is less than with actual ethernet, but still, is it possible to do? I would really like to save the hassle of having to wire in ethernet.
