This tutorial will guide you in setting up your laptop as a wifi-hotspot to share wifi or dial-up connection. I am using Windows 7 as a base OS and connectify to work as wifi-hotspot.

In this way you can share your internet / wifi / dial-up connection with your wifi enabled device.

OS Windows 7 (Not tried on XP)
WIFI enabled laptop
Connectify. You can download the free version from here.

1. To start the process download and install Connectify from above link.
2. After installation it will ask to reboot the machine, do the same.
3. After restart you will see Connectify icon in task bar notification area.

4. Click on the Icon. Now we need to create wifi-hostspot. Fill up require details as per your wifi configuration and click on Start Hostspot. For better understanding see below screenshot.

Remember Select the proper network adapter in Internet option. If you are getting connected to internet via dial up connection select dial up connection in Internet option. I am using wireless network connection to connect internet.

5. Now setup your wifi enabled device to use our laptop connection as an access point. I have tried the same with Nokia phone. After successful connection you will see your device in Client tab.

That’s it. Enjoy your new wifi-hotspot.
