Question Use 5800's WIFI as Wireless adaptor for Comp.

Hello there,

I have a simple question to ask you.

I want to use Nokia 5800's Wifi as adaptor for my computer.
I mean I want to surf net on my computer by wireless network from my phone.

Like that way:
Connect to WIFI on 5800 > Connect the phone to PC (via USB cable) > Surf net (on PC) by the Wireless i've connected on 5800's Wifi.

Is it possible to do this?

Smile Tethering

Technically tethering is possible . This means using the 3/2G modem of your device to connect to your PC via Bluetooth or USB and Nokia PC Suite/or OVI Suite on the PC . But your provider might not allow and block this .
Using your device as a USB WiFi antenna for your PC doesn't work , afaik .
Instead buy a separate USB WiFi antenna .

Smile ?

Not really . The WiFi antenna's I'm using are allready build in the devices .
I think most of them will do . To be prepared for future I would choose 802.11 a/b/g/n with 2.4 and 5 GHz capability .
a and b are the older = slower specs , so in general not important .
g but especially n is the new standard , with 5 GHz the new Band .
For a laptop I would prefer the tiniest . For a standalone PC it doesn't matter that much .
But after all even the cheapest will do , when not to far from the Router / Access Point .

Regards jApi NL
