Windows WiFi Hotspot
Turning a wired Internet connection wireless
I wanted to convert my wired Internet connection into a WiFi Internet connection for my WiFi enabled devices.
I already had a WiFi router but its been giving me issues since yesterday.
I had a WiFi enabled laptop running Windows 7 and I figured there must be a way to turn it into a WiFi hotspot.
Sure enough Google showed me several ways I could do this by installing additional software.
But I wasn’t interested in paying half the cost of a router, nor was I interested in installing free software from unknown sources!
A bit more Googling, and lots of patience later I figured out how to do this myself.
As it turns out I didn’t need to install additional software.
A few settings here and there around Windows 7 as an Administrator user and I was done.
The method was a bit technical and so I wondered what options a person without a technical background would have.
Determined to make it easier for the average Joe, I wrote a step-by-step guide for those interested.
