Until recently I managed a very similar setup. I think all you need is
The latter is just so that you can see spurious connection attempts
in /var/log/security. Check man natd for more info.
Also, you'll have to either statically configure your wife's PC to use
192.168.1.2 (or whatever), default gateway/route 192.168.1.1 and proper DNS.
Alternatively install and configure dhcpd, or, which I like more for a simple
application like that, dnsmasq. Google will tell you more :-)
