A little confused as to what you're trying to do. The USB internet 
sharing (or pass through as you put it) allows your PC to use the 
phone's internet. To get the phone to use your home internet service it 
needs to use the wifi connection.

Alternatively, you can access your home network using the 4G network 
using the VPN services.

IF I understand you correctly here, you need to configure the wifi 
connection on your phone, and have a wifi access point available. Else- 
see above... :)
