I have a PC that I want to use to browse the internet, but it doesn't have a wifi adapter, and my internet is much faster than tethering. Is there any way to use my phone as a wifi adapter so myPc can connect to my wifi network?

I'm pretty sure WMWifiRouter has that function built in... but I agree, USB wireless adapters are pretty much free...

Re: TP2 as Wifi adapter? (But not tethering)

Seems to me like OP is asking if he can use his TP2 to behave as if it were a USB wifi adapter, since he doesn't have one. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to that question, though I do know that 3rd party products (e.g., PDANet) will allow you to get internet on your PC through your phone's native 3G connection.

Yes, this can be done on WMWiFiRouter when selecting the WiFi > USB option.

Instead of the 3G > USB (Tether) or 3G > Wifi (WiFi Sharing)

WMWifiRouter uses your data connection on your phone and turns it into a router..
