    Hey guys

    Sounds a bit weird, I know, but is it possible to have my laptop connected up to WiFi, and then my phone connected to the computer sharing that connection. Basically, I'm moving to a place that has a router quite far away, with many walls in the way. My laptop will be hooked up to a BearExtender Turbo via usb which boosts the range by a crazy amount, I'm just wondering how I can take advantage of that with my nokia.

    Backup plan is to get a wifi extender for the router, but I'd rather not do this as it's not my place and it's also open to the public, so I don't want anything to get stolen.

    Any ideas?

    I think this is what you're after: Turn Your Windows PC Into a Wireless Hotspot

    I'm going with the assumption that you have a Windows 7 machine. There is software out there to help you do this as well. You're looking to turn your laptop into a WiFi hotspot, that's all.
