The Weekly Q&A 7
We just got to our Questions and Answers number 7. These are the five questions we have chosen for this week:

Q How to use HD2 to connect PC to wireless router?
A You can use WMWifiRouter, it has one mode that allows what you’re looking for. You just have to add your WiFi as your default WiFi node on WiMo. WMWiFirouter will use it.
