Cable or not to cable that is the question

Hi all,

I have just been reading some of the rather complicated discussions about internet connections. I am with Tiscali , now Talk Talk. Everything is fine with my connection through the etherenet cable to my desktop however the wireless connection to my laptop is non existent, the server is not even on the network connection list. I have spent the past 3 weeks trying to get online help, no luck with the advice from Tiscali, sssooooo I need to ask all you IT experts if I can do the following. As my router has 4 portals can I run a cable to the room where my laptop is, connect the laptop and use the internet on both computers at the same time? My logic is if we can use the internet at the same time when the wireless connection worked why not with the cable???
