Creating a hotspot with the Torch

My father used to have a device that could create a hotspot for his Blackberry Tour by simply plugging it in.  Is there such a device for the Torch?


Appreciate the help...

Re: Creating a hotspot with the Torch

I used to have the ability to use my phone over the internet through a wireless router as a hot spot when I had my wireless service through T-Mobile. At my particular location I had very little reception but with the wireless router and a WiFi phone that all changed to having excellent reception and no more roaming. Where the AT&T service is sporadic at best here I was hoping that AT&T might enhance there service connection with the same or similar technology. Imagine how much better the service would be if the many AT&T customers had hot spots at their homes?
