    Unfortunately, what you are taking about is impossible. The only way for the phone to use the internet connection of a computer is through wifi, which you do not have. What you can do however is to obtain a copy of the apk file of the app you want. This is equivalent to an installation exe file on a pc. You cannot download apk files off the market, but there are "other" ways to do this.

    Alternatively, just buy a usb wifi stick off amazon out ebay. Those things are dirt cheap.

    Yup you can...if you have the .apk you can use droid explore to upload the package to the phone. just put the phone in USB debugging connect with cable and open droid explore. The goto tools> manage packages > install....job done.

    Sorry I misunderstood your question.(As I often do) The files have to be on your computer or you must save them to your computer or phone for that to work.
