Done a search and can't find the answer to this anywhere.

Recently moved house and just had my internet installed. My laptop doesnt have wireless and my GF has pinched the only wireless key we have. I don't have any CAT 5 or RJ45 to make a cable and was wondering if I can use my HD2 (plugged in via USB) to connect my PC to my wireless router? You may say 'why dont you just use internet sharing and connect via 3G?'... The simple answer to that is that we live in a signal blackspot and as such cannot get a mobile signal in my home.

You can use WMWifiRouter :

It has one mode that allows what you're looking for.
You just have to add your WiFi as your default WiFi node on WiMo. WMWiFirouter will use it.

PC -> USB cable -> phone (HD2 in my case) -> WMWifiRouter -> WiFi -> WiFi Hotspot (WiFi router in your case) -> internet.

Using it to write down this post.

Works great.

Hope it helps !
