Default How To?

I was just wondering how to Use My wired Broadband Connection on my Android phone. I Searched it and found something like a "Wireless USB WiFi Router" but i dont know weather it would act as a Hotspot?and convert the broadband into a WiFi signal? Is this the right thing im looking for? Please help!

I personally have not used that specific app but most phones support netive tethering (or sharing your broadband, if that floats your boat). I personally recomend FoxFi, an app developed by the makers of PDAnet, a reliable tethering app. Search the Play Store on YOUR COMPUTER first. Some carriers block the app from showing. Have fun and don't get caught.

He wants to use his cable/dsl connection on his phone, not the other way around.

Connectify might work if you have a Wi-Fi adapter on your PC. But it would probably just be easier to get a wireless router.
