    If the "iphone device" supports ad-hoc wireless then set up an ad-hoc wireless network between it and the PC. I'd start with no encryption and then encrypt it after getting it working.

    You can then enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on the ethernet connection that has internet access. If the ethernet is connected to a router then instead of ICS you can bridge the two connections.
