Iphone tethering help



Does anyone know if its possible to tether through iphone through a wireless router in your home?

For example:

Iphone picks up home wifi connection ---> connects through usb on computer ---> connects to internet

The traditional tether solution will be to tether off your data plan using your 3G network but thats not exactly what I want here.

Sounds weird at first huh? lol

Reason being is because my desktop does not have a wireless card and is far away from my router and without a reasonably long ethernet cable, I can't connect to my network. I don't have time to go pick up a powerline kit which is eventually what I was planning to do. I was just looking for a temporary fix.

And if all are wondering, I did manage to find a way to accomplish this... apparently PdaNet allows for this and is exactly what I'm using right now through my iPhone. Working great so far!
