You can always (if using Windows XP, for sure), enable Internet Connection Sharing using your phone's EXACT "Local Area Network" connection as the internet connection (the one that shows up when you connect your phone and enable tethering), and using your lan/wireless card as your home network (hoping you can make your Wireless connection an Infrastructure; or if you use a direct Ethernet cord to your console (Wii requires the Nintendo LAN adapter for this), either use a switch-back Ethernet cord, or a auto-switch-back compatable network card.
Terminology I used
This may or may not be the correct wording of these term names... I'm just using what I call them.
What is a "switch-back Ethernet cord" or "auto-switch-back network card"?
A "switch-back Ethernet cord" is a cord that looks like one for a normal (modern) network CAT-6 (etc.), but is made to DIRECTLY connect two computers. (Requires some form of DNS/DHCP server for mostly all situations-- Windows' Internet Connection Sharing handles that.) Technicaly speaking, the difference is that the cord's wires are switched between the two sides (example. on both side it would be like |A|B|C|D| , while on normal cords its |A|B|C|D| and |D|C|B|A| ... *insert twisted-pair information here which I omitted*)
The switch-back network card on the other hand, does that switching for you automatically (that's if the network card's drivers know to do that).

(a multiple-dictionary search engine) if you don't know what that means, because I refuse to explain with my unable-to-explain-it
