    If there is WiFi available, why not connect to WiFi with your phone? If the answer is because the company doesn't allow your cell to connect to WiFi, then I would probably recommend not circumventing their security protocols.

    With that said, if you can connect to the network via Ethernet cable then you could probably setup an ad-hoc network which can share the internet via WiFi. I don't think you can connect to the network via WiFi then create an ad-hoc network on the same adapter. Unless you have a second wireless adapter you need Ethernet to the main network.

    I used this, http://www.connectify.me/ with an alfa wireless usb adapter to create a hotspot from my laptop. Works well when travelling.
