    I use a broadband dongle on my Windows 7. I want to expose my laptop as a wifi hotspot so that i can use internet on my samsung galaxy ace.

    I have tried Connectify but my chipset is not supported so it simply make the adhoc network. Tried Bzeek. My phone get connected, but no browsing.

    Any solution that you guys have? Please let me know. And lets solve this puzzle.

    Thanks.

    PS: I am in no mood to root my device.

    How to convert your laptop into a Wireless HotSpot?

    in theory you should just be able to find you laptop as a wireless connection and connect just as you would a usual wireless modem
