I have a broadband connection to my computer, but no wireless router. I would like to know if I can connect my android as a wifi bridge; using my broadband connection instead of my mobile internet connection.

I am thinking of turning off mobile network, connecting my phone to my computer with a usb cable, selecting internet pass through, then turning on wifi hotspot.

Does this work, or will the phone default to the mobile internet connection instead?

Setup the phone as a modem. Still most android phones can be setup as a WiFi hotspot.
