    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.
    Finally I had my own open network. Next step to configure my phone to connect it.

    1. You need rooted phone.
    2. Turn off Wi-Fi. Next, install GScript Lite and Root Explorer (from Market).
    4. Create executable file netwifi in /system/bin using Root Explorer: go to /system/bin, in RootExplorer's menu select NewFile, set Name to netwifi and press Ok.
    5. Let's change file content. Tap to created file and select Open in Text Editor. В теле файла прописываем следующую строчку
    iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc essid YourWifiHotSpotNetwork, replace YourWifiHotSpotNetwork to the name of created before hot-spot. Next open a menu and select Save & Exit.
    6. Next set access restrictions chmod 755 to created file. Tap on created file and select Permissions. Set ticks by this example: Column Read for User, Group, Others; Col Write only for User; Col Execute for User, Group and Others. Press Ok and exit RootExplorer.
    7. Run GScript Lite and create a script. Enter a menu anв select Add script. Set Name field as you wish, set tick to Need SU, set text to the bottom field as /system/bin/netwifi. Next press Save and close GScript Lite.
    8. Create shortcut on desktop. Select New Shortcut -> Gscript Lite -> your script name.
    9. Open setting, turn on Wi-Fi. Create a new WiFi connection and name it exactly as you named it before on PC. Set open security type for this net.

    Connecting:

    1. Run or activate WiFi on PC.
    2. Run WiFi на Android.
    3. Run created GScript shortcut on phone desktop.

    After that you will see a desired wifi icon on phone bar.


    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

    Leave all other fields blank.
