I would like to use Windows Phone 8 internet connection on my desktop computer, it doesn't have wireless network card so I can't use phone's wireles access point.

So only other options are Bluetooth and USB cable, is it possible to use those for phone internet connection sharing ?

As a heads up, this process is called "Tethering". You might be able to find more information on google under the search "Windows 8 phone USB tethering". – Darth Android Jan 23 '13 at 19:24

Depends if your phone contract provider allows this. I wasn't able to until I upgraded my contract. They may charge you for tethering.

Otherwise: Navigate to Settings, System, Internet Sharing. Turn sharing on and plug your phone in to your computer with the usb cable.

I did that before, it only gives me choice to import files and photos, so I suppose that I must call my provider, thanks – Antonio Bakula Jan 23 '13 at 20:17
This method allows other devices to share your PC connection. I think the question is asking the other way around! – Andrew Jan 23 '13 at 20:22
