If you use a wireless router like the Linksys wrt54g, it is a wireless router with 4 ports for wired connections. You can hardwire your PC and the wireless connection to your apple will be seamless. Here is a link to that product:

do you think it will work with a usb modem though? there is only one input on it for a standard uk phone line connector, will i be able to plug it into the router or will i have to buy a combined router/modem

There will be an output with a ethernet connector that will go to the router and then the router will send out both a wired signal and a wireless signal.
