    No, there is no way to do this that I've ever seen. There is a discussion on Apple's Support Community with comments as recent as this year on the topic.

    Not trying to be funny but why would you want to do this? Faster connection maybe?

    I'd say maybe he's either not at his own residence or even at a hotel

    A portable Hotspot like the ASUS 330NGE or AirPort Express might be an option.

    I'm not familiar with the Asus units, but an Airport Express would do the trick.

    AirPort Express = better + AirPort App for setup.
    ASUS 330NGE = cheap, 802.11G, not easy to setup, did I mention cheap.

    If it were me I'd buy a used Express on Craigslist.

    I used an airport express all through France and it worked perfectly. Just plugged the wired internet cord in and voila instant wireless internet. Had a vpn account setup and skyped to contact home daily as well.

    Another vote for an Airport Express. I travel for a living and use one in every hotel that still offers a wired connection. Cheap, easy to pack.

    If you have a laptop, use connectify and connect the ethernet to the laptop.
