    hey - sup - hayall doin?!

    k so i have the vmware with windows for different situations like installing programs used for pc only and other assorted stuff for my video editing and photography business...

    i figured out how to get my blackberry to run as a wireless modem (only for pc) while im nowhere a wifi is found...

    i know that the way the windows is set up that the pc uses Mac's internet connection automatically...

    is there a way, to have, in this situation, pc give the mac side use of its internet connection?!

    any help is appreciated...!

    In the US, I've set up Verizon Wireless and Sprint BlackBerries for 1xEVDO data connections in Mac OS X without issue, both wireless (Bluetooth) and wired (USB) tethering. The only issue I've had is a bit of funkiness with my MacBook Air if I close the lid and suspend with a Bluetooth-tethered wireless 1xEVDO connection, I cannot get it to reconnect without rebooting. Otherwise, as long as I disconnect the Bluetooth-tethered connection first before closing the lid, all is ok and I use this setup frequently throughout the day.
