I'm not sure this is going to be possible. I dont think the WLAN in the N80 is set up to share connection like this (effectively it would have to be hosting an adhoc wifi network). The problem is the phone sees the connections (3G / WLAN as either or as far as I can tell). It will only let connect to one Access Point at a time.

That said it might be possible to write software to do this.

Clearly the other way round (using the PC as the host) works absolutely fine (because the phone just uses WLAN like any other Acess Point).

I suspect the only way you might be able to do this is:

Connect a PC (connected to an N80 via USB) to the net via the N80 over WCDMA. Share that connection (i.e. the PC's connection via a ad-hoc wireless network). This assumes the PC has a wifi capability.
