Access WWW through computer

Are there plans to add this functionality to PB?  Can it be done by an OS upgrade; or is it a hardware modification?  I can't believe BB didn't provide this access and limited WWW access to BB phone data and WiFi.

Re: Access WWW through computer

enable wifi sharing (if it has it) on the PC and you should be able to do it

Re: Access WWW through computer

Hi Machold,

You should install and configure Virtual Router or similar software on your PC. Functionality depends on your Wi-Fi card installed in your PC, not on PlayBook.
Respectfully,

Do you not have a wireless router? They are cheap enough.

Do you ever see the occasion where the computer is connected to the internet with no wifi available?
