Can I connect laptop to internet through N8

Hi Guys

 

Just wondering

 

Can I connect my laptop to the Internet through my N8, Like I used to be able to do with my old Sony Ericsson 800i

 

If so how.

A laptop is able to use the phones data connection. You just need to install the ovi suite software and follow the instructions.

Hi Guys

 

I did manage to find the section in OVI to connect to the internet and I got a connected message but internet explorer etc fails to connect. so its not quite as easy as its supposed to be.

Interestingly I just tried to connect to the internet through the N8 and OVI on my desctop PC running windows 7 and it connected fine, so why the problem on my Netbook running Windows XP.

You likely have to set the access point up manually in Ovi suite settings.

At least I do with T-mo USA.
