Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

WiFi service requires a specific radio installed when the device is configured.

Your device cannot be retro-fitted for Wifi.

 

We can establish and interment connection on your PC using your device as the modem.

 

I need the overflowing information from you:

Make and model of your PC (MAC) and the version of Operating System running.

The current version of the Blackberry desktop software

The current version of the device OS software

Thanks,

This would require individual setups on the device and MAC even then the connection would be singular

one device or another. Think basic, this is a one IP connection on the device OK?

I'll gather some articles and post back in a few!

Thanks,

Re: Wifi in Blackberry storm 9530

Hi,

 

I guess I didn't catch that the first time. The majority of users want the reverse.

Let me see what I can find, Ok?

(see if you can sell any of the articles I posted while I'm gone!)

all Wi-Fi BlackBerry devices can do that using Wi-Fi. Only very few devices do not have Wi-Fi, including the 9500 and the 9530. Fortunately, in your profile you have indicated that you own a 9550 that can use Wi-Fi.

 

Besides, Wi-Fi is much more secure than BlueTooth.

Hello,

 

Nope...the ability to use one device as a modem for the other is unidirectional...only the BB can be a modem for the PC, not the other way around.

 

Good luck!
