    I have an IP phone that needs to be connected upstairs in my office that receives WiFi connection from a downstairs WiFi router.

    Can i wire it to one of Ethernet ports on back of desktop? or is there some nifty WiFi thingamajig that i can put on back of phone to do it all magically?

    Should work. You also, of course, have to bridge the wireless and ethernet connections in Network Connections.
