Default how to use BB Curve 8320 Wifi connection to a desktop PC?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I have a BB8320 connected to a local hotspot. I also have a desktop PC without wireless access to internet.

My question is: Can I connect the device to my desktop and browse the internet on my PC using Wifi connection of BB Curve?

when i tethered my 8700, I had the ability to get online, although slow. Now that I have an 8320, does this mean I can tether and, if in a hotspot, get 'hot-spot' speeds? or dial-up type speeds like i used to get?

sorry, found the answer elsewhere, disregard this question. here's the answer for others:
T-Mo curve + $9.99 UMA plan = free browsing with Hotspots?

the 54th post was helpful.
