    Hi. Does anyone know of any apps that allow you to use the internet on your hero by connecting through usb cable? I'd like to use the internet on my phone at work and while I have an internet connection on my computer, we do not have a wireless network - most posts I have found have been about using your phone as a modem which is not what i'm after

    cheers

    What OS do you use? Windows 7 can turn it's self into a WiFi hotspot when plugged into a wired connection (if your PC is capable of wireless). It may be possible on other OSes with 3rd party programs.
