    I always had issues in Windows networks when file sharing was required between Classes of networks.. was always happiest with Class C - C..

    But then I could be incorrect.. (or Lazy).. having mainly only worked a narrow group of network types .. or I just should stick to malware

    You need to route that class C network to your wireless network on all your other machines.

    Something like:

    route add 172.31.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.1

    This will route all traffic destined for 172.31.1.0/24 to 10.0.0.1, assuming 10.0.0.1 is the wired interface of the computer with the wireless connection.

    This is mainly due to Windows using a (subnet) broadcast to find other computers. If name resolving is setup properly you won't have any issues.
