Mobile internet/laptop

13 posts in this topic

My family are moving house on Monday.

We're not getting internet installed until Xmas eve. This is an inconvenience.

I know this is a longshot, but I have a Blackberry. Is there any way I can get my laptop to pick up my mobile broadband so I can browse the web.

Cheers.

Yes it's called tethering

Works better with a USB cable

Look on BB forums

I've done tethering on my Blackberry and it was painfully slow. You tried scanning to see if there are any unsecured networks?

Nah, I won't know until I move in. But it's a densely populated area so I'm hopeful there's one I can latch on to.

yea the speeds on an iPhone are actually fucking sick when you're tethered to your laptop.
