I have a pc without a wireless card with ubuntu 14.04 installed. It is hardwired to the modem
I want to add a laptop over the wireless portion of the modem. The modem is capable of handling wifi
Is it possible to have a hardwired desktop and wireless laptop on the same modem

Clarification Request
Given only this level of detail?

It's a maybe. Without the model numbers of the network gear I can't check out the wifi capable modem's features. It should be OK but my answer has to remain "maybe."
