Bypass Router configuration.

Hi,

I was wondering if I can use the internet connection on my computer through the USB cable on my Blackberry pearl 8100.

Can I browse and download stuff through this connection instead of my data plan with my wireless service provider?

 

Regards,

Ajay

Nope. You can do just the opposite when you need -- using the BlackBerry as the modem for a laptop. Smiley Happy

modem wifi?

 

the 8100 cannot act as a wifi hotspot.

 

If you need to connect your laptop to the 8100 as a modem, see this:
