    Default How to make my laptop become a wireless hotspot?

    I am running xp, getting internet from a LAN line. I want to turn my laptop into a wireless hotspot so that my iPod Touch and other laptops can get internet via wifi.

    If it does not work in Xp, he could always try the manual method.

    You can try to create Ad-Hoc network between the laptop and iPod. It works.
