Fantastic tool - "Connectify" lets you easily share your Wifi connection from your laptop with other devices.

If you travel, no doubt you've connected to wifi hotspots in hotels, cafes, airports, other people's offices. A lot of these hot spots require click through agreements and many require payment. Sharing this connection with your camera, phone, ipod, e-reader, and even friends can be difficult. Connecting with each of the other devices is frustrating and not always possible.

It isn't difficult any more. Free tool "Connectify" loads on your Windows 7 machine and makes sharing whatever connection your have easy and secure. Just walk through the set up wizard, define a password, and selection which connection you want to share. The tool will use your PC to establish your own hotspot.

Type in cmd prompt:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyNet key=MyPassword

netsh wlan start hostednetwork
