    Is it possible to connect my Android mobile with my PC Wi-Fi connection by hosting a network in it?

    I want to pair my Android mobile with my PC Wi-Fi connection so that I can share files and internet too. Can you tell me what steps I should follow to do it? Kindly provide me with details.

    Setting up Wifi connection is very simple, If you have access to the Router then simply you have to pair the device with the Router and then the connection will be established.

    Path: Menu --> Settings --> Wireless and Networks --> Enable Wifi.

    Access the same path and open Wifi settings, search the router name and pair it with your Mobile. This way you can easily establish a connection.

    Hi,
    You can connect to any WiFi network using your phone all you have to do is open the Settings menu from the application drawer and then select the option as "WiFi" under the option "Wireless & Networks" this can be used to connect to the available network. When you turn ON WiFi the phone will automatically scan for available networks if your PC WiFi network is available you can connect to it by tapping on the network if there is any password it will prompt you to enter the password enter it and you are done. In your PC in order to start a Ad-Hoc connection open connection manager from Control Panel and select the option as "Set Up new Wireless Connection" in connection type set the type as Ad-Hoc connection once it is set up you have to link your LAN connection or Wireless Connection to the Ad-Hoc connection by sharing the network with the Ad-Hoc connection after doing that you can enjoy the Internet connection of your PC with that of your Phone. If you find the above step difficult you can download an application by name "Connectify" and follow the steps that are mentioned in the application.
    Hope this Helps.
