You can but it will require spending money and doing a little research based on your Operating System etc.


Just Google for - How to turn PC into WIFI hotspot < your operating system >.
Think it can be done with some USB adapters or a PCI card. Dependent on the spare slots available on your motherboard a PCI card may not be an option.

Your PC, is it laptop or desktop?
Laptop definitely has wifi, right? with the help from a program named connectify from http://connectify.me, you can turn your laptop's wifi into access point, and your phone can connect through that.

believe me, it works. i used it all day.

Sadly, no it's not (at this time)... you can share Phone connection -> PC, but not the other way around (via USB) this will have to be done via the WiFi method.
