    Hi I recently bought a HTC Tattoo. And I like to access internet on Tattoo using PC broadband connection. I have ASUS motherboard with inbuild WiFi support. So, using that I have made my WiFi of PC to Access Point Mode. So, now I am able to connect to PC using that WiFi network. But I am unable to access internet. Can anyone suggest me the way to share my PC internet to my HTC Tattoo to save money when we are at home.

    I understood that you have a PC connected to Internet via cable and you configured the PC as a WiFi access point.

    I think what you have to do is set up your PC to work as a router, so that it routes automatically requests coming from the Tattoo to internet.

    How to do it depends on which operative system you have, just make a search with Google
