I was just toying with my MDA II while it was seated in the USB charger/sync cradle and all of a sudden, my MDA II shows Internet --> PC connection in the popup window that is displayed if you tap on the signal strength indicator in the Today Screen/standby taskbar. It seems that the PPC recognizes the open DSL connection to my ISP via the USB connection it has with the PC. Then it connects to my network card which in turn is connected to the DSL modem. I know that the Connection Settings app (Start --> Settings --> Connections Tab --> Connections) does have an option for you to tell the PPC which I tried surfing the web from my PPC by using Pocket IE. It works just fine but the http sites come out a little large . On a final note, the connection also needs a synced connection with ActiveSync in order to work. The screenshot is attached to this post.
