Access the internet on a computer by tethering to the PlayBook? No.

i will explain the scenario..

I have a desktop computer with internet facility.
I have a blackberry playbook, i will connect this device to my desktop with a usb cable.

Then i want to access internet in my playbook.... this is possible or not???

if this is possible how can i achieve it.??

Note:- (in android phones there is a facility called Internet Pass-through (connect to internet via PC)), I am trying to achieve that!!!

Sorry for my bad English :(

Thanks& Regards,
Janeesh

Cannot do that either.

The PlayBook has three methods of accessing the internet: Wifi, bluetooth tethering using any device (I presume any device, but obviously phones) that supports bluetooth tethering , and the bluetooth bridge with BlackBerrys running OS versions late enough to support the bridge app, and wifi.
