Default Connect 8300 to home wifi network using bluetooth

I'll admit, I see no real application for this at all but it was an idea that popped into my head on the drive to work today.

I use my home dsl connection along with a wireless router to allow wireless internet access on my laptop anywhere in my house. My 8300 has bluetooth but obviously no wifi capabilities. Can the 8300 be connected to my home wireless network via bluetooth thus allowing internet access on the 8300? I did a quick search and it appears some have successfully been able to do this with their Treos. I know it makes no sense to use the Blackberry for internet access when there is a laptop available but I was just curious if this was even possible.

I concur that it makes no sense...
Connect to a home network via BT?
I don't think so....
