    Default Use 5800 for a laptop without WLAN

    Hello!

    My laptop doesn't have WLAN capability so I can not connect to my school's WLAN. So I would like to use the 5800 phone for that.
    Is it possible?

    i am searching too for such program but i think it is more expensive to develop a program for that than buying a wlan stick so.. i.dont think it makes sense

    but I am able to connect to the internet using 5800's internet connection. Why can't I do the same except this time using the WLAN network instead of the mobile provider one?

    Can you not just use Ovi Suite?

    Does the Ovi suite allow you to use WLAN as the internet connection on the PC?

    I tried doing that with a Nokia PC suite but I couldn't so is this now possible on Ovi suite or not?

    An USB WLAN stick is around 15-20$ in my country. Pennies, if you ask me for what it offers.

    plus the hassle of always carrying the PCMCIA card around.
    It's a shame such a program apparently does not exist.
