Unfortunately Android does not support Ad-hoc connections.

I am out of ideas and as Johan said, Android does not support ad hoc connections so probably can't do it. sad

Re: How to use PC internet connection (via USB) to Xperia mini Pro?

Hey thats really strange, i have recently bought Xperia mini pro. I had HTC previously with gingerbread 2.3.5 installed and it allowed to use my pc internet connection.That was very simple. How come Xperia dont support. Is that some hardware needed to do that?

Re: How to use PC internet connection (via USB) to Xperia mini Pro?

The reverse USB tethering feature u r talking about is not available in Sony phones yet. It is a feature on HTC. However this can still be done and requires rooting the device. However it is only possible to browse after using this method - cannot download anything
