You have two options, you can either use the mobile hotspot if your PC has WiFi feature, or you install Blackberry desktop manager and connect using USB cable.

Just like Femi said, make sure you install the latest desktop manager. Another thing is, does your current desktop manager recognize your Bold 9900?

Do you have an active BIS on the sim?
If yes, which network?
Else, which data package are you subscribed to?
