Add wifi capability to an older pc that has no radio by connecting usb to phone in a "wifi reverse tether". How! I know it's got to be possible to route data out the tether in from wifi because phones can sen the same data out usb from 4g. Why not from wifi?

A cheap usb wireless card would be a FAR better option than trying to make your phone be a wireless card for the PC. Simply put, you would have to fine or make your own program on the phone to even make this work.

I was hoping there would be an xda developer that knows a way to trick the phone into thinking the wifi input was input from the 4g. I could almost imagine a jumper on the hardware. Tight budget and figured if there's a way a lot of people would do it and save the Chinese kids from solder poisoning. Wow ...maybe I haven't slid as far down Maslows' hierarchy as I thought I had.

Unfortunately. I have yet to see anyone make such a modification to a phone.

It taunts me. I'll open that phone and put jumpers on it if I have to just to. Even if it is only just to say it's possible. I enjoy this kind of punishment anyway. It would be an awesome way to beat "the man". Smart TV's to the people... viva la revolution. Ha kidding...kinda
