Answer

The feature you need is called "Internet Connection Sharing". From the Network and Sharing Center, select "Change Adapter Settings". Select your Internet connection and pull up its properties page. Click on the "Sharing" tab. Check "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection". Select the network interface that connects to the Pi as the interface to share on.
