    Internet sharing through WIFI router.


    Hi,

    I have a reliance net connect plus data-card which i am using to connect internet on my laptop. I have looked at several forums and sites to share internet using wifi hotspot using the netsh commands but my android detects an connects to the wifi but is unable to access the internet( i have shared my data card internet to the hotspot connection).

    For what i have understood till not i think we cannot share internet using hosted network to android devices please tell me a way if we can do that.

    So now i came across another post which shares internet using a wifi router,
    http://chintanbuch.com/tips-n-tricks/share-internet-using-3g-usb-dongle-router/
    I tried changing the configuration and the connecting to the wifi but i am still not able to connect my android device.

    Please help me, any method is okay for me. I just need internet access on my mobile phone using the data card.

    Thanks.

    Could try this: Virtual Router Plus - Free Portable Virtual Router for Windows

    Do not download there! Has a PUP.

    Here is good download link: Virtual Router Plus Download - Softpedia

    I have tried it already, my mobile gets connected to the created wifi but i am unable to get internet access. Are there any settings in the IP address that are needed to be changed.

    Can i have any information regarding the WiFi router network sharing ??

    Thanks.

    Re: the above link .. I was reading comments made by users, and was worried about one person who reviewed the program and wrote the following
    Virtual Router Plus 2.6.0
    Software is good but it installs a whole lot of bloatware without asking.
