Well - I have managed to answer my own question
I found a link to PirateBox for n810. This allows the n810 to act as an access point and a web server (with lighttpd).
The instructions are at
A couple of notes may help you get it working
1. I needed to 'sudo gainroot' to run lighttpd.
2. I changed the IP addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 192.168.1.1 and the min-max to 192.168.1.0-255. I'm not sure if I had to do this, but it didn't seem to work otherwise.
Once you have followed the instructions, running /sbin/ifconfig on the n810 should show an IP address of 192.168.1.1.
Then, you have to disconnect your PC (or whatever - my HTC Desire Z works happily as well) from the standard Access Point to use your new (unsecured) access point.
Check the IP address - it will be of the form 192.168.1.xxx, where xxx was 214 for me.
So the PC is now accessing the n810 as a personal area network. If you have lighttpd setup properly, now you can access web pages from your n810 at
Hope this helps
