I haven't a wifi shared connection on the office so I decided to create a hot-spot with wireless adapter and my Win Xp PC. Was used D-Link N150 USB Adapter. It was installed regarding manual and created an open Ad-Hoc network. Adapter's software has own application to manage networks, so it was easy to do. It is a lot of info to create hot-spot using Win XP features. E.g. this
Do not forget to share your main internet connection.

Resolving 'Obtaining IP Address' problem on phone
Next problem I resolved was stacked 'Obtaining IP Address' message on my phone when connecting ad-hoc on PC. First time it connected Ok but after refreshing network configuration this problem appeared. I googled a lot of info, many users with different phones has same problem but no solution. Router DHCP didn't get proper IP address for phone.
Hunting a problem I discovered strange IP on wireless adapter settings. (You could see it typing ipconfig
command on cmd). Problem was resolved with manual setting up a configuration:
Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
