    If you have a wireless connection, yes. Just turn wifi on for your phone and it should discover your wireless connection. However, if you have dial-up or an ethernet connection, then the answee is no. You would need to purchase a wireless router.

    Connecting for the first time, you will need to go to (using your phone )menu> settings > wireless and networks > wifi settings. Click network to connect and enter password if required.

    If you have MAC Filtering turned on for your router, be sure to disable it, add your phones MAC address, and then re-enable it or you won't be able to connect.

    If it has to be plugged into a USB port to work than no. If your just using a 3g connection for your computer why wouldn't just use the 3g on your phone? You have unlimited data... You won't see a gain in speed.
