    Purchase a WiFi router.

    What OS are you running on the PC? Basically you need to setup a vertual bridge between the NIC (attached to your modem) and the Wi-Fi adapter. Then setup an ad-hoc Wi-Fi connection on the PC and have the Pre connect to that. Google these to things, insterting your OS, and you will have your answers.

    However....I would highly recommend spending the 30 Euros on a Wi-Fi router/modem. That would simplify things greatly.

    Your post has some ambiguity in it.

    Are you asking how to tether your PC to the Pre so that the Pre provides Internet access for the PC? Or are you asking for the PC to provide a WiFi hotspot for the Pre so that the Pre can get to the Internet?

    thank you for your reply

    i think i have done that. here's what i got.

    now i could see from my pc that my pc was broadcasting signal, the method i used was from a tutorial in which taught you how to use e71 to surf through a pc. however, my pre don't see that signal

    e71?? What the heck is that? A Nokia phone? A type of pancake? The viscosity of the motor oil in your car?

    It's possible that the Pre Wi-Fi radio will not connect unless the Wi-Fi network is in Infrastructure mode. You could call Palm on that one.

    If you have a mac, just click on the wifi icon, and scroll down to the words "create network" :-)

    the reason why i quoted nokia e71 was that it does have, i believe, the same wifi function. so the tutorial for e71 should also work for pre. however, as i said, also because i don't know whether pc-to-pc actually really meant that pc to pc instead of pc-to-pre. btw, i don't understand why "pancake, viscosity of the motor oil"
