    ...with wifi. If you are hardwired in, I don't think it can be done.

    This is more of a Windows question.

    Macs with wifi cards can do it. If you're getting internet through ethernet you can tell the Mac to create its own wifi network and share the internet with that signal.

    Then you just sign onto that network with the phone the same as any other wifi.

    Whether (and how to) get Windows to do this, I have no idea. I'd suggest googling "internet sharing, windows" to see what you find. The folks here can answer iPhone questions better than Windows questions.

    My office is not a problem... But at one of my clients office I need it... As reception is very low and he doesn't have the wifi... I have been spending a lot of time in his office lately... I miss out on urgent emails sometimes... I normally have the cable in my bag so I was trying to figure out if I could jack in...

    If the iPhone can connect to Ad-Hoc wireless networks, then you can set one up on windows and connect to it.

    Alternatively, I have used a product called Connectify to make my laptop into an Access Point. The free version works well.
