I might not be correct, but I am pretty sure that the only way to use the internet from your Blackberry is with a tethering plan through your carrier. I don't think you can use it wirelessly as a wi-fi hotspot.-Houston(HUEY)
Our operator doesnt provide this feature...
They are saying its not possible to use Internet through the Laptop...
Thats why im thinking... may be there is a way... =)
Ok if not a Wi-Fi through the USB cable...
And what is Tethering Plan??

There are several programs for S60 based phones to do this. Also, there was an app for the iPhone put ATT had it removed within hours. (the program still works but can no longer be downloaded). I would think that someone could easily write a program to do this.

But beware your provider may explictly prevent this kind of use. The plan I'm on with T-Mobile UK does this. Using my BB as a modem requires a more expensive plan. Not sure how this is ploiced in practice - but I'm sure my data usage pattern would look petty different if I was browsing on a laptop, let alone sharing with outher laptops too, rather than on a single BB.

I think that would be cool to setup, and I know of a program on Windows Mobile (which I had previously), it's called WM6 WiFi Router. It uses your 3G/EDGE/GPRS connection and you create an Ad-hoc (computer-to-computer/handheld) wireless network.
I'm fortunate that my Rogers/Canadian plan supports tethering, and my plan gives me 6GB of bandwidth/transfer.
