    Not sure if this would work! According to post #4 it is possible don't know if that is what you were referring to though?

    How to Turn Your XP Laptop into a Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot is the article linked to in the last post on that page.

    for reasons that have never been made clear, it's nearly impossible to use internet connection sharing to get this to work with an apple product. There was a software update for osx that was supposed have fixed it sharing with an imac/mac mini, but i still wasnt able to get it to work with mine. I have successfully created a wired network using ics and even hooked a wireless router into the ethernet port but my ubuntu laptop wouldn't work with the internet when i removed the router and plugged it in directly. If you want to give it a try yourself (maybe ios6 fixes it) all you need is a wifi hookup. If you don't have a wifi dongle for your computer, they are less than ten dollars on ebay. i paid $7 for mine.
