    Internet on iPad via PC tethering?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to "tether" a Wifi only iPad up to your PC using the cable and share the PC's internet connection?

    As far as i know you can't but if you got room you could put a wifi card in the pc and bridge the LAN to wifi and make an AD-HOC (think thats the right one) network and attach the ipad to that

    Thanks, but unfortunately that's not an option.

    Not as far as I know of, I was trying to do the same the other day and was rather unimpressed that it was not able to.

    Could you not use the virtual WiFi feature in Windows 7 or 8 to create an ad-hoc wireless network that can be used by the iPad?

    Code:
    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=YOURSSID key=PASSWORD
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

    As highlighted above, I don't have a wifi card in my PC so this option is no good.
