Hello,

I am using an X10i. I've been wondering, are there any ways i can connect my phone to the internet using my computer's modem?

I am not trying to connect my computer to the internet by using my phone as a modem. Do not teach me how to do it. My question and that question are two different questions.

Thanks.

yeah ,turn your pc into a wifi hotspot..use softwares like virtual wifi router for windows 7

Note:it will work only if u use a cable to connect ur pc and have a jobless wifi in your pc.. :P

you can also connect using bluetooth,i tried once but failed ,didnt tried much,it wasnt worth that much effort!!

It's not possible through USB. It possible with the stock function of win7 or software for your pc. (Only if you got wireless wifi card in it ofcourse)

FYI I no you didn't want to use your phone as a modem but just in case this is the best way Barnacle Wifi Tether@ http://szym.net/barnacle/ It's not in the market. Just a FYI.

I'm using Windows 7 native wifi sharing right now, it broadcasts as a regular wifi network with WPA-2. I use it for phones, consoles, etc
