I do not have a wifi router.

I want my iPhone to be able to use my broadband internet instead of the slow EDGE internet.

The simple solution would be to buy a wifi router whih would enable my iPhone to access the wifi home network.

*What if I could turn the mac mini into a wifi access point?* That would save me from the hassle of buying a wifi router.

Any idea how to do this??
