I have a REAL need (not idiosyncratic) for which I’ve invested research time that I don’t have. Details aside: in the comfort of my Peekskill, NY apartment, I HAVE NO ACCESS TO WI-FI (Boingo or AT&T)! The only way I can work on my iPhone or iPAD at home, I have to pay AT&T $25/mo for 3G (slow and limited) just for my iPAD. I'm already paying $25/mo for my iPhone 3G. Unless someone has another solution, my question is: Is there a clever way to use my CABLE modem (Optimum) via my desktop, attach my iPAD and use the cable modem to access the internet? For one reason, cable is way faster and more reliable than Wi-Fi or 3G.

Not sure why you think your question has anything to do with Wireshark (which is the main topic here, or network analysis in general, but not "how to connect device a to network b"), but I suggest you go and buy a WiFi router, connect it to your cable modem on one side and your computer and iPAD to the router on the other.
