Trick Kindle into believing it's got a WiFi connection?

Hello,
is there some way to trick my Kindle into thinking that it's got some WiFi connection without using 3G but rather via usbnet?

thanks

Nobody has ever said that.

The WiFi interface and the 3G modem are both connected via USB even though the WiFi chip is integrated to the main Kindle board and the 3G modem is a separate USB based Mini PCI Express card that fits into a slot.

Nobody has done the necessary investigation and research into whether you can selectively power individual devices in the Kindle. Until that happens it is unknown whether you can or can't disable the 3G modem whilst leaving the WiFi interface enabled.
