Hi, is it "possible to create a wifi" or make my dekstop using hardwire connection, a hotspot? (Without buying a wireless router/modem/card)
I mean, is there a tweak or program I can download to configure my desktop running on Windows 7 to create wi-fi?
The reason why I'm interested in this it's because, for bluetooth, it's possible. Just wondering if they have the same nature with Wifi (In terms of configuration and tweaks).... ^^,

Thanks. How's the connection going to be? How's the set-up?
The router modem is connected to my PC via ethernet at the back of the CPU tower.

I'm using windows 7 and I don't have any clue on where to go or how to configure it since I don't even know if it's possible. Please be more specific. I am not an advance user to this nature. Start it by answering if it's possible or not, for me to stop searching online :(

if you have a network card connected to your modem and a wireless network card then YES you can create a wireless access point

All I have is a PC running on windows 7 hardwired to my modem router. I don't have a wireless usb card. I guess, it's not possible then.
Nothing, I just thought of it, because 4years ago, you can connect your phone to share files with your desktop "hardwired", via "bluetooth" (transfer songs from PC to phone via bluetooth). So, I though of researching if there's a tweak or a program that can be downloaded to work like that of bluetooth but this time, a wifi software taking advantage of DSL hardwire internet connection of my ISP.
