Does your pc have a wireless card?  If so, you can probably set it up as a wifi hotspot.

Here are some fairly good instructions (after the Vista and Mac) - and obviously you'll want to share the internet from your USB modem, rather than the LAN.

If you use internet connection sharing on the vodem connection, then plug the pcs ethernet into the WAN port of the router, the ipad should be able to connect to the wireless router. This would break LAN access though.
