Provided you have a laptop, and the internet connection to it via LAN, you can use the laptop as the Wi-Fi router. This can be achieved by doing simple network configuration.
- Go to Control Panel->Network and Sharing Center
- Click on “Setup a new connection or network”
- Select “Setup a wireless ad-hoc network”


- Give a connection name (SSID) and set the network key
- Turn on the internet connection sharing


Now you will be able to search for this Wi-Fi AP in other laptops, and mobiles. You can start using the internet just be entering the network key.

Hi, I am new here and feel happy for becoming the part of this great environment.Thanks for the information as I did not know much WiFi related details.


If on Windows 7 use Connectify. It makes use of the Windows Virtual Access point and makes the connection possible for device that work with Access Points only (not Ad Hoc)

I am having problem sharing the LAN connection through wifi. In ubuntu it works but I can't get it working in windows. I setup adhoc connection but it does not show internet sharing option in windows7.
