Wondering about GSM -> Wifi access point capability ?

The e71 has full wifi capability, and also can receive internet over GSM ...

I wonder, is it possible to turn the e71 itself into a wifi access point that I could then use with my computers/devices/etc. ?

I know I can tether with bluetooth, but that is not what I want to do ... I want to plug my e71 into AC power, and get it on GSM, and then have it bridge that internet connection into a standard wireless access point that I could then use with other devices (like my laptop, my wifes laptop, etc.)

The point is, when I am traveling, I have a need for multiple devices (not all of them computers) to be on wifi all at the same time, so i can't tether them all.

Is anybody doing anything like this ?

thanks! That is exactly what I am looking for.

I am looking at their premium version because I need ssh access from my laptops, and their free version only does http(s)
