Get a router, a basic one can be had for ~1.5k, connect ethernet cable to that, now connect the laptop to it via wireless, and connect the PC with another ethernet cable.

This is a good one: Netgear JNR1010 N150 Wireless Router - Netgear: Flipkart.com

The blue is the input ethernet port where your internet line connects, yellows are outputs, connect pc to that, connect laptop via wireless.

A router will be a much better option than a wifi adapter. If you plan to use a adapter, then usability will not be so versatile, say, you on your PC and want to use net on your laptop, then wifi adapter will do, but what if PC goes off due to some reason ? Then again plug the cable to laptop, which is a tedious task. A router will keep you free from these headaches.

Is it a modem or router? See the manual if there is anything about router functionality.

does your PC has wifi by using a usb wifi adapter?if yes then just use windows networking like you normally do when sharing over lan except in this case it would be wifi.if not then also you can share files where pc is connected to siemens sl2_141 by lan wire & laptop is connected by wifi.
