Have a friend who has an 8330 and has his pc patch cable.
He's just now setting up his pc to XP.
Using patchcord and (Software?), can he set up a network allowing his pc to use the internet? Not just for e-mail, but as a fully functional wireless browser type setup?
If so, what software, any tips?
Thanks.

He can tether the BB to the PC to allow the PC to use the data, but he needs a BB data plan and a tether plan from his carrier.

Search on "tether" and also look at the FAQ for an article on using the BB as a modem.

Cannot use the BB as a wireless hotspot however. BBs do not have that capability.
