You don't. BlackBerrys are not networkable, they do not have wifi.

That sucks.

Is it possible to do it through an adapter or something?

Nope. There is rumor that a wifi enabled BlackBerry will be coming, but it isn't here yet, and I doubt if we will see it for some time. That's not what BBs do...yet.

I would be happy if they would even do their OTA stuff via a tethered connection to a PC. Like it will do for BES already with the BB device manager running on your PC, but in a BIS environment instead/as well.

When connected via BB device manager running on your PC in a BES environment, the data can flow via your PC to the BES instead of over GPRS...
