    Hi...I'm back with another question, hopefully it's not too silly. I hope someone can answer me.

    I don't have a data plan and neither do I have wireless at work. I'm wondering if there was someway my phone could piggy back on my laptop which is connected to my company network?

    Something like tethering but the other way around, laptop to phone instead of phone to laptop?

    Thanks for stopping by and taking a look :)

    Sure. Assuming your laptop's running Windows, download Connectify; it'll turn your laptop into a hotspot. All automated too, so you don't have to set it up much.

    Nice!! Thanks for the tip, nice looking app.

    Unfortunately, i'm still on XP. My work PC hasn't been upgraded to Windows 7. Any idea for XP?
