    Can I use HTC Explorer Android smartphone as wireless router?

    It is possible to use several applications in my HTC Explorer Android smartphone without any problem. Even so, I want to use this device as a wireless router. How can I make it possible?

    Slide the Notifications panel and hit the gear icon on the panel. A list of options will then appear on the screen from which locate the ‘Wireless & Networks’ label. Hit the ‘More’ option under this label. The next step required is to tap over the ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot & tethering’ option. You can then find ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings’ option on the screen. Tap on that option and enter the name of the router. After that, select the type of security and type in a password for the router. It is not required to enter password in case you have chosen ‘None’ in security. Finally, choose the ‘Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot’ option for enabling wireless router.

    Hi,
    In order to use your HTC Explorer as a wireless router you have to open the application drawer and then select the option as "Settings" inside the settings menu there will be another option called as "Wireless & Networks" select that and you will be able to select the another option called as "Tethering and Portable hot spot" select that and inside that you will be able to see another option called as "WiFi tethering" select that and make sure to change the password as you are using it for the first time the password might be random, if you use it as a open network then no problem. Once the connection is setup you will be able to detect the name of the WiFi and you can connect to it.
    Hope this Helps.
