    Need to be clear ...

    1. I presume you do not have a router.
    2. Without the router what exactly do you want .....

    A . be able to use internet on your mobile wirelessly
    B. be able to use internet on your laptop wirelessly

    You would need a router in all probability to use the wifi. You can how ever use your mobile internet (EDGE or 3G) to be used on your laptop wirelessly. There is an option called "Portable Wi Fi Hotspot" on the mobile, if you turn that off your mobile becomes a wifi hotspot which can be detected in any wifi enabled device like your laptop. All you need to do is to connect it then.

    i assume ur dialing for internet change the connection type to pppoe mode in the modem & set the userid & password so that it connects automatically then try connecting the phone using conectify

    Download & install connectify
    Click on the connectify icon in taskbar to configure the access point
    WiFi in the field Name, enter the name (SSID) of the hotspot that you create
    Choose a password
    Scroll and select Internet network connection that you currently use to connect to the Internet and want to share via the wireless network
    Finally, click on the Start button hotspot
    The access point is now started and active
    Finally connect the phone
