Default Using your phone as a wireless (wifi) adapter for your PC?

Hey guys, i was wondering if windows mobile 6 could connect your phone through wifi, and then share that wifi connection with your PC? 3g is pretty slow in my area, and we dont get the broadband service installed in our new apartment for another week or so. However, i can connect my phone to a few wireless networks that are close by. It would be nice if i could share that wifi connection with my PC, so i wouldnt have to deal with the crappy 3g here. Essentially I want to use my phone as a wireless adapter, then sharing that connection to my PC through BT or USB. The internet share in WM6 only alows for you to select your GPRS internet connection to share. An update/fix/or 3rd party app that could do what i want would rock.Thnks.
