mobile internet tethering with Z10 and my laptop??

How do I use my Z10 to be a wireless modem for my laptop. The feature was part of BB Desktop but I don't see it on BB Link.

Thanks Brian

Re: mobile internet tethering with Z10 and my laptop??

You can turn on the hotspot and connect your PC via wireless:

 

setup/network connections/hotspot (note that WIFI will turn off when your enable hotspot)

 

(I tried this yesterday, painless)

 

OR

 

Select tehering and use a USB or bluetooth conection:

 

setup/network connections/tethering

 

(only used this with my Playbook bluetooth tethered)

 

Some providers may charge for hot spot or tethering so I imagine that some providers may have this disabled in their locked phones.
