    No, there is no way (that I know of) to connect to a DSL LAN router from your iPhone, even with a laptop acting as a bridge. You'll need to use a wireless router or settle with 3G.

    If you have a laptop with a WiFi card, and connect it to broadband internet by LAN by plugging in a Cat 5 cable, then you can create an Ad Hoc network and share your laptops internet with an iphone or ipod touch. If you got as far as connecting via an ad hoc network but could not get the broadband internet on your iphone then either you did not share the internet connection with the ad hoc network or you had some other conection issue. For example I shared a wired broadband internet connection with 2 iphones and 1 ipod touch while on holiday in Verbier - but I could only do it booting into Windows 7 and creating an ad hoc network, when I tried the same in my main Vista install I could connect but got no internet on the iphones/ipod touch - I pratted around with various settings and such but as Windows 7 did the job in 3 clicks I just stuck with that.

    So basically you can do what you want to, but it will all depend on what OS you are running, and how much time you want to spend messing with settings etc. Personally I think Vista could not manage to share the broadband bit, I changed loads of settings but nothing seemed to help. I haven't tried on XP or OSX but in theory any OS should do this if you get all the settings correct.
