Hi all and thank you for taking an interest in my question. :) 

I have a cellular device called "nokia 2730 classic" and as far as I know most cell-phones are also a type of a modem.
I would like to know what do I have to do inorder to connect my PC to the Internet using nokia 2730 classic(like a USB cellular modem with SIM card)?
I did configured my home network to work through my router and am using this link right now but i would like to have the possibility to use an alternate device such as my cell-phone inorder to connect to the net.
there are two types of connections I'm interested about:
1. cell-phone -> PC
2. cell-phone -> router > PC (is this even possible?)

My current OS is Windows XP with all the SPs.

How do I do it?
thank you in advance, Tuxu.

1) connect the phone via USB and download the drivers from Nokia if XP does not recognize your Phone as a Modem. I believe max speed is 33Kb

2) it is a no go

I know how to make my PC to recognize the device lol. :) 
It does recognize it because i can backup my cellphone on my PC but *HOW* do I cause the computer to surf through it?!?
Is it a dial-up? what type of connection do i need to set? how do i know what the setting are? how do i know what to configure?

OK! thats a great help! :) 
thank you.

Few more question are:
1. can I see my network setting in my 2730? username\pass ect? can I extract them?
2. is it secured? can somebody hack my cellphone? is there an app that can protect me from viruses?

why do not buy a web card for your PC? I think even you can surf by this way, the speed that you surf the websites is very limited.


I have a 10mb/ps connection so i dont need one.

Just wanted to know howto so i wont be wifi dependent if I already have the capability in my cellphone.

Thank you. :)
