    If you have a Mac you can create a network from your Mac.. assuming it has the ability in network preferences, which it should.

    Under what circumstance are you needing this? I am curious.

    Only thru wifi wireless connection. The Ethernet plug won't fit in the iPhone.

    Nope the windows won't detect the iphone part, when it looks for the device under wireless connections.

    The object is to take the wireless connection that your computer has, create a connection (as if the computer was a router) and then allow the iPhone to connect to it.

    The iPhone should see the computer, not the other way around.
