Default Using Bold as Wifi Gateway/Networking

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

I have a pc in the computer room with a modem with wifi on it,
i have a pc in the lounge that i want to hook into the internet, this pc doesnt have a wifi card of any sort in it,
I am wanting to hook the pc in the lounge up to the internet via my bb 9000 via wifi to get it on the net

Was wondering if this is possible at all.... prety much just wanna use the bold as a gateway,
have been looking all over the net with no answers,

Any feedback would be appreciated

AFAIK, it isn't. You can tether the BB and connect via the BB data plan, but not via a home WiFi network.

Have you tried a search? I know it has been asked before.

You cannot use the bold the way you stated above, but you can tether it as said above. You need the appropriate data plan that includes tethering. Go to this site for the steps on how to tether.
