    I have used a lot of devices to use net on a computer with the help of my mobile starting with infrared ( a long,long time ago), bluetooth, wifi, usb....but i was thinking is there a way i can use net on my mobile by using the net connection on my lappy.

    I have a tata photon + wireless connection, a lappy ( acer aspire 1 d255, to be specific) and a android set ( OS 2.2.2 ).
    so i want to use net on my android set by trying to share the photon connection on my lappy either by usb or wifi, i know its kinda opposite what we usually do but thats it is.

    thanks in advance.

    Download a software called Connectify. Easiest way to make laptop a wireless Hotspot.
    Then you should be able to use the Internet over Wifi through laptop :wink:

    There are many techniques which makes your laptop a wireless hotspot, I have done it once before but the speed varies a lot, it will decrease like hell.It is like you will get less than 40-50% speed on your mobile of the speed you get on your laptop.

    Well never heard of that software, mind sharing the link?

    It works for me using Connectify. Try configuring it again, perhaps there is some problem in the configuration.

    No problem :)
    It seems strange. I tried to browse too through a Android phone but seems Android is unable to detect hotspots made from Laptop

    I tried 2 softwares to make a softAP-

    1) Connectify - didnt work on Android but works fine on iPod
    2) Virtual Access Point- again didn't work with Google's Android.
    Strange.

    With connectify, I could connect the tab and it says internet sharing is enabled but when I try browsing its not loading
    Im using net from a 3g modem

    This is what I am getting now

    For my android, Internet works on it through my wired connection on my desktop, by something called INTERNET PASS-THROUGH, via USB.
    You Can try that out.
