    You can set this up using the command prompt or you can install the connectify software which makes it easier for some. The first one should be the easiest because it's software based. The last one is a download for a virtual router if that's what you wanted.

    Connectify For Windows 8

    This one shows the manual set up using the command prompt.

    Or you can install a virtual router.
