Default Reverse Tether

I got Internet connection at home but not with wifi and i want to share my broadband connection with my x10mini.
I mean "REVERSE TETHERING"
Please don't tell me to see other threads because i'm tired of doing that and followed many methods and apps but no success!!

I think that can't be done, at least i don't know how with the cable, a solution can be sharing your connection from a computer with WiFi, or maybe Bluetooth, but I don't know if there is any way to navigate via bluetooth with this device.

You may flash nAa -11 kernel and miniCM7 2.2.0 this kernel have native usb/wi-fi tethering (I use this always with my Sony Vaio/Macbook when I`m in work). It`s no hard to do this but You must spend some time for this and this may brick your phone

Ooops Sorry I don`t understand your question XD, If you have computer without wi-fi You can`t (maybe but`s it hard to to this) sharing inthernet connection to xperia, bluetooth doesn`t work some time ago I try sharing inthernet with BT on my SV but`s not work, maybe I don`t know How to do this :/

But You may buy wi-fi card and plug-in to computer (windows 7/mac os x) have tools (not complicated to user) that sharing inthernet with wi-fi

You should be able to do a windows network sharing via WiFi and the connect to the network created by that. I don't think the mini/pro supports usb tethering in nAa 11 and it doesn't in stock
