Can a Samsung BlackJack 2 act as a wireless access point?

Hi,

One of the managers at my office is having home Internet troubles.  In order for their VPN to work (there are two people connecting from the home IP to the office) they need either a static IP or two separate channels (as far as I know).  She has a Samsung BlackJack II, and she said she thinks it can work as a wireless access point, but she doesn't know how to set it up to do that.  I wondered if anyone here might know if this is true (does it have this functionality?), how to set it up, and how it works (would it solve our problems by being a separate channel for her to connect through, or does it just pick up a Wi-fi connection and extend it... in which case, this wouldn't help us, because they'd still be connecting through the same IP)?

Thanks for any help!
