Can i browse the net from my laptop through my Blackberry Curve 8520?
 
Hi Guys!

I just purchased my first Blackberry the other day and I am very impressed so far :)

Here is my question...

My laptop's wireless assistant has broken, so can I use my Blackberry Curve 8520 to act as a wireless device for my laptop to be able to connect to my home wifi?

I can already connect my blackberry to my home wifi and browse the net through the blackberry browser but can I use it to browse on my laptop?

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Ben

The BB cannot be used as a wireless hotspot.

Be careful with tethering as, depending on carrier, you may need a separate tethering plan.

A really old and slow device you have there. I don't even know if you can or not. See the FAQ for info on tethering and give it a go. Gonna be slow in any case.
