Hi. I am going to teach you an exact way of how to use your laptop to share internet through your laptop’s wifi.
There is a very good application called connectify that helps you get connected to the internet in all ways possible. The application lets you use it to the maximum only if you buy the premium version of it. But I will show you how to get connected to the internet using a 3g or 2g dongle to share internet through your laptops wifi.
The following methods support all devices including PS3 and android.
We have to create a dummy accesspoint
step 1: In windows 7 select control panel->select”view network status and tasks”->select”manage wireless networks”->Click on the add button.
step 2: select “manually create a network profile’
step 3: enter the name of the network.( type any name u wish )
step 4:select the type of security(my prefered choice is WPA2-personal)
step5 :leave encrytpion type as it is.
step6: click on next.
Now you have created your own dummy accesspoint. The next step is using windows 7’s inbuilt feature known as internet connection sharing, We can share the internet from a 3g dongle and make the laptop as a wifi router.
Step7: go to control panel->select”view network status and tasks”->Select “change adapter settings”.
step 8: right click on the modem which is currently being used for internet.(mine was Airtel).
step 9: Select properties
step 10: click on the sharing tab. ->enable “allow all network users”.
step 11: select home network connection. Here we have to select through which way we are going to share the data.
Step 12: Select wireless network connection 2. This is because we created a dummy accesspoint in wireless network connection 2.
After this step u have to go to command prompt to create the hosted network,
run command prompt as administrator privilege.
step 1: create hostednetwork
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=YourVirtualNetworkName key=YourNetworkPassword step 2: start hostednetwork netsh wlan start hostednetwork the above two steps will create and start the hosted network. Now Ur internet from Ur dongle will get shared through WiFi . any device can be connected to it.Your Laptop will act as a WiFi router.
