Even ad hoc doesn't allow for pass through from wireless to Ethernet, ad hoc is shared wireless to wireless connection not for sharing to a wired connection. What you want to do here is not possible using normal procedures and would not be reliable even if you could make it work.
It will not work to pick up partial weak signal from neighbor, magically go through your machine then back out of Ethernet to a router then the router magically becomes functional? You couldn't pay me enough to make that set up work and it's certainly not conventional or something you can expect to work reliably.
You can however, pick up the wireless signal then rebroadcast this signal so your other wireless devices can pick it up. I believe this is what you want to accomplish anyway correct? No need to push this through a wired connection then to another router.
Another router is not required for this to work, just some user input at the command prompt and you must use a proper Windows 7 approved driver that has the Msoft Virtual WiFi mini port adaptor installed. http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials...-Windows-7.htm
