I have a windows 7.5 phone with which I would like to share internet with through wifi. The problem is that windows phone does not support adhoc connections and hence I cannot simply share internet with it. Anyone has any ideas/solutions?


  • We need more details. What does the windows phone support?

For running your laptop as an access point, this is only possible if your wireless adapter supports going into the master mode. If it does not support this, you're totally out of luck.
