Internet Connection Sharing with Bluetooth/irDA/USB Cable

Hi. I've been tossing up this idea for a while and Im curious if its even possible. I use my P900 mainly as a mobile email and web browsing devise. Cingular GPRS is only 40-60kbps though so it makes it kind of difficult at times. Out and about it isnt so bad since there is nothing else better but it would be nice to take advantage of some higher speeds when Im at home. I have a wireless LAN set up in my apartment with a few computers sharing my cable connection. Since the P900 has no Wi-Fi capabilities I was wondering if it was possible to do data connect with one of my bluetooth enabled computers (ot even through irDA or the data cable) in order to have the phone use its faster internet connection. Has anyone had any luck setting this up....or something similar to this. Any 3rd party software sollutions that might be capable of doing this or is it built into the phone?
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
