How to share 3G Internet over WiFi
The other day, when my DSL broke down, I was forced to use my backup Smart Bro Prepaid and Globe Visibility to connect to the net. Problem was that only one PC at home had the connection. He’s a quick solution I did to share 3G internet over WiFi.
You will need a laptop with WiFi to act as the access point or if you only have a desktop PC, you can get one of those USB WiFi dongles.
- Go to your Control Panel and select Network and Sharing Center.
- In the Tasks menu, click on the link “Set up a Connection or Network”.
- In the next window, select the option “Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network” and click next until you reach the network name and security options.
- Type in the name of your new network and select the Security Type.
That’s it. Fire up your Smart Bro, Globe Visibility and Sun Cellular Wireless Broadband and once you’re connected online, anyone who accesses your new WiFi network will also have internet connection.
Another option is when you have a WiFi capable 3G phone, you can install JoikuSpot and enable internet sharing over WiFi too.
