    Is this possible?
    I can share the internet fine over a mobile network, but does anyone know if I can basically use the phone as a mini wireless router?

    Rationale behind this is an upcoming holiday hotel charges exorbitant rates for a wifi connection, so between myself and my wife, I was hoping to just 'buy' one connection, hook that up to my phone, then use the internet sharing to allow me to connect my surface and wifes ipad to my phone.
    Would that work?

    You can try the app Tether-X to see if it work. Just disable mobile network and connect only to the Wifi and see if it work or not. I don't see why not.

    Thanks

    Sorry but I don't think you can receive a WiFi signal and then repeat it on the same antenna and at the same time.

    I might be wrong though ...

    I made a post for this exact same thing but no one provided any useful help. Other Mobile Operating Systems can do that fine.

    Hi guys,
    Just to provide a definitive answer on this...
    jojapath is correct, doesn't work.
    it is giving me:
    "Connection not shared, There's no mobile data connection to share at the moment. Check your mobile settings and signal, and try again".
