My guess would be that your Pilot, although it is capable of achieving
wireless connectivity, will not propagate the signal and hence not be of
much use as a router. This, I stress, is merely a speculation of mine.
Does your Pilot provide you with enough options? Does the laptop detect a
wireless connection? Is there possibly some third-party software for the
Pilot, which can somehow address the problem? If somebody offered such
networking solution, it would probably have a decent market share,
especially if the handheld is a mobile phone combo. Maybe something that
exists already simply evades me.
I agree it's quite a challenge.
