    Get into the home screen and hit the ‘Menu’ key on your phone. This will bring up a list of options on the screen from which tap the ‘Settings’ option. Once you get into phone settings, navigate into ‘Wireless & networks -> Tethering & portable hotspot’ and select the check box next to ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot’ label. Choose ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings’ option and tap the ‘Configure Wi-Fi hotspot’ option. The next step required is to enter a Network SSID for establishing the connection. You can then select either ‘Open’ or ‘WPA2 PSK’ security protocol. If you choose the second one, then you need to type a password for making connection and press the ‘Save’ button after wards.
