Probably not under Windows, since most Windows drivers don't have that functionality. You'll need an inexpensive wireless access point on your wired network, which generally makes more sense in any event.

You have a wired internet connection coming in to your laptop, and a WiFi built in that's not being used? That connection could be shared to the WiFi of an ipod-touch.
