When you tried connecting to the WiFi did you click the little WiFi icon in the notification drop down? This should allow you to configure your device to talk to the WiFi router. Even if there is nothing to set, you need to click this so your phone isn't constantly connecting to random open wifi hotspots.

I think the USB tethering is for using your device's connection to give access to something else (the opposite of what you are trying to accomplish) but I haven't done that so I could be wrong. I'm actually leaving work and will be off the grid for most of the evening. If you don't hear back from me tonight, that's why. I will get back to you with some ideas.

Oh, and silly me, welcome to Android Forums.

Some of the other staff members may chime in as well as I will let them know I will be unable to help for a few hours.

If you are trying to use your pc as a hotspot, it will not work since the android OS can not use/see ad-hoc networks. You will also not be able to do it over USB. You will have to use a wireless adapter that accepts being turned into an "access point" like Zyxel branded wifi adapters.

http://www.zyxel.com/us/en/products_services/nwd2205.shtml?t=p

So your setup would be, the laptop/pc hard wired over Ethernet to the Internet, then a compatible wifi adapter turned to "access point" mode.
