I have recently purchased a Ipaq rx 3715 and have been very happy with all the features it has. I have been happily surfing the internet using free wireless hotspots in my area and while at work I have also been connecting through work's internet connection using bluetooth ( with permission of course).
I have read many forum posts on how to connect in this manner via a pc's internet connection using bluetooth. I wish to see if the opposite is possible? Using a wireless connection available to my PDA I wish to share this with a Win XP pc that does not have internet but can connect to my Ipaq via Bluetooth or ActiveSync cable.
I understand some kind of software will probably have to run on my Ipaq but I just haven't been able to find any such software. Most people seem to want to make this connection the other way round.
Any comments or solutions would be welcomed.

Nohing is impossible, it just may not have been done yet.

What you are wanting to do is essentially the same as using a mobile phone as a modem, many people use their phones to connect over GPRS, then route the data to their laptop via bluetooth or cable etc. I'm sure a piece of software is all you need, however given that a WiFi PC Card or USB dongle can be bought for around $80, i don't think anyone wil have bothered to write that software. Just go get a WiFi USB dongle instead, then you won't need the PDA with you anyway
