Access Internet From Mobile Using PCs Internet Connection

You can surf in your mobile with the internet connection in your PC. What ever it be.you will be able to use FREE internet on mobile. Of course, you may need to pay for internet service you use already on PC.
Now as with most mobile hacks, this is limited to symbian mobiles which includes almost all Nokia Series60 and Many Sony Ericsson phones.
Anyway online most of the time, I need internet on mobile only to update themes, games and other stuff. Downloading themes, softwares and other stuff on PC and then sending them to mobile is one option but I always find its tedious.
This one is really better as its FREE and speed is much better than what GPRS ever offered!
How it will work?
