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