yeah i saw the routers that can go with a cell phone but i'm asking if there's a way for me to do this without having to buy a new router, because i don't really have the money to take a risk and buy a new router.

No, there is not a way to share bandwidth with others concurrently without a router.

Right now it is my only current option, and sorry about the late replies. I'm supposed to receive an email when i get a reply to this thread but i'm not getting anything. I know what i'm asking is kind of a headache to try and do but i feel like I'm up to try and do this if i can.

Hello,

Assuming your Blackjack runs Windows Mobile, try the Internet Sharing application.

I run WM Pro on my Touch Pro and it works fine.

You have the options of either using a USB or bluetooth PAN connection.

Also, check out WMWiFiRouter, great application that can turn your WiFi into a hotspot.

Cheers.

My phone does not have wifi capability so i can't use WMwifirouter and yes my phone has windows mobile 6 i believe. I'm unsure of how to do a bluetooth PAN if i can even do one on this phone, but what i'm trying to do now is take the connection i have now and share it with other devices so i can connect them to the internet.
