Ubuntu with the NetworkManager as a NAT gateway

Sometimes I use my Xubuntu notebook as a NAT gateway for my Windows 7 computer because its WLAN interface works in 5GHz band and Windows computer works only in 2.4GHz. So I connect my Win7 computer to my Xubuntu notebook using a crossover Ethernet cable and turn it ito a NAT gateway using a bash script.
