you can TETHER, this uses the data carrier network i.e. EDGE or 3G.
But you cant use the wi-fi via BB to laptop.

How to use your Bold as a modem - BlackBerry Forums at

This is to set up your bold to tether. Note that you need a data plan that supports tethering or else you will end up with a very large bill at the end of the month.

Um... no.
I didn't think so.
