Only info I could find:
if you root your phone, and you are happy to mess around editing the wireless config files to add an ad-hoc wireless connection. You can then turn on internet connection sharing on your desktop to turn your desktop's wireless connection into an ad-hoc WiFi access point. Once it's all set up you end up with a connection like this: Phone -> Desktop's Wireless card -> Desktop Computer -> Desktop's wired connection -> Router -> Internet You will need two network connections on your desktop to do this (typically a wireless and a wired, and have the wired connected to your router). Alternatively, buy a cheap wireless access point or wireless router. You can then just connect directly to that.

I have a wifi link, which is a USB adaptor that plugs into my laptop. The software lets the adaptor act as a wifi access point. I use it all the time when on photo shoots to transmit photos from my camera to my laptop. It's a very nice way to keep everything portable.

Re: Sharing internet via pc/laptop without wifi
Want to connect Android mobile to laptop internet by USB cable
Do you have any definitive reply about connecting your phone to internet through USB ?
My laptop is using a Wifi that needs USER and PASSWORD to login, and I cannot login on laptop and phone at the same time (only one user can be connected).
