I have a LAN connection icon in the taskbar,it says that the network cable is unpluged,my question is this can i use a normal phone connection to connect this to another pc,and would it work online the same as a modem,IE:could i surf with it if i plugged my phone in to it.

I am unsure of what you are trying to acheive.

Assuming you have one machine connected to the net via a modem - then by connecting this to another machine by a crossover cable using the machines Lan ports then you will be able to share the internet connection.
