I can share my network connection by turning my PC in to a WIFI hotspot without using such applications and software. The good thing about this is, you’ll never worry about any blue screen error or errors of any other kind.

  5. Hi Babanature,

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I do share my wifi with my tenant and two of my neighbors. One is a college professor and the others are grad students. I live near Cornell University, so the grad students are abound. The more I can do for my fellow neighbors, the better. Of course, they are trusted “friends” so this is why I share.

    However, my mom lives in an active 55 and over community that has terrible internet connections. I will introduce this to their office. I think it will enhance the elders to use computers more often.

    Thanks for the great review, I’ll pass it on.

  6. Hi Babanature,

    This is a great tutorial and for sure Sharing is Caring.

    Well, I never thought of sharing my connection with others but this is certainly a good tutorial if I ever thought of helping someone with a wifi connection.

    Thanks for a great tutorial post Babanature.

    Be Blessed,


  7. To be sincere, I don’t know it is possible to share WiFi connection with others without any software. Personally I’ve been using Connectify and it’s working fine for me. Thanks for sharing. I’ll try your method too.

  8. i cant fond ”set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network” button in “Set up a new connection or network”. how can i activate that option pls help..

  9. i ‘m not able 2 find this option “set up a wireless ad hoc(comp 2 cmp )network.
    i’m using windows 8.
    pls help.
    how can i get this option?

  10. mayank is right. There is no option of ‘set up a wireless ad hoc network’ in widows 8. If you got the solution for windows 8, then please share…

  11. I think the is something wrong in my pc.. I can’t see this option bro >.< "set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network”..:'(

    by the way Good Post babanature .. Keep it up 🙂

  12. Thanks for the tutorial, Babanature! I haven’t tried this but I will definitely do it later on. Just one thing, I am using a smart broadband modem which is widely used here in the Philippines. Is this effective for this kind of internet connection?

  13. If your laptop is receiving a wifi signal, why wouldn’t the other computer be able to receive the same signal? I suppose, if you did not have a wireless router, and you had your laptop plugged in through Ethernet, I could see a reason to do this. But I do not know many people who use wifi, that would need to have someone connect wireless to your computer, they just use the same signal you are receiving. But anyhow, good way to share your internet connection. You can also do the same thing with a wires(not wifi) network, if you do not have a router. Just let the other computers plugged into your internet, leach of the one computer that is plugged in. I used to do that with windows 98 and XP, but darn, that was a lifetime ago on a 233 MGHZ processor, holding 128 MB ram.. Great instructions to those who know not how to do this. Thank you. No disrespect, I just think this process is way outdated.
