Is it possible with the Kindle touch...?

I would want to use the web browser via usb with the kindle 4 touch
I don't have the wi-fi and I live in Europe,
I have seen that you can use the kindle as an alternative display of the PC
but I don't think this feature is available with the new kindle 4,am I right?
is it possible to have this feature on the kindle keyboard?(is it the kindle 3?)

I have a strong myopia and an e ink display would be a godsend.....

thanks from a newbie

I think it would be much easier for you to get Wifi than try to hack some tethering method.

Since you must have internet access:

1. A router can be had pretty cheaply these days.

2. Most PCs/Laptops allow you to create an internet sharing so your PC can provide a WiFi connections for your Kindle.

That all said... you probably are better of with an LCD set for a big font for web browsing than the eInk which will be too slow and the browser will not render sites as they were intended to be seen.

Thanks for your help,
I'm using an LCD with big font but I continue to have problems.....

Are you saying nobody hacked the kindle touch to make it possible to navigate via USB?

thanks again

I don't know off hand. Is it 100% not possible for you to set up a WiFi connection so you don't need to jail break or hack your Kindle?
