What OS are you running? It's a bit of work to get it to function properly. Why not just use a router?

While there are ways to transform your laptop or desktop with a wireless connection into a router, the procedures are usually not for the common user.

Now there is a software application that only takes minutes and few clicks to turn your Windows 7 WiFi - enable laptop into a wireless router.

The software is called Connectify and you can find out more about it here:

Connectify works by taking advantage of Windows 7's native Virtual WiFi Technology.

This is the technology that makes it possible for Windows 7 to share it's WiFi connection with other WiFi devices.

This also means Connectify will not work on Windows Vista and older Windows versions.
