I am using a Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman phone. It has internet connection, but I prefer to use the internet connection available in my laptop. It is not WiFi, but a modem based internet.

When I connect my mobile to download from Android Market, it recognizes the phone and starts downloading in the mobile. But it uses the internet in the phone, not in the laptop. Can any one help me please.

    Connectify will work. We've covered it in the past:

    It turns your laptop into a wifi hotspot; you can connect to the laptop's wifi from your phone.

        To download Connectify visit the link below ( Softpedia Secure Download (US) is most preferable or else choose UK) -
