    Hello friend,

    You device can act as a WiFi hotspot and you can tether your internet to other devices through WiFi.
    For this purpose, you must have an active data 2g/3g connection.
    Note: You cannot use your WiFi simultaneously when you tether you internet.

    Follow these steps to create a wireless Hotspot:
    - Go to Settings.
    - Select 'Wireless & Networks'. Now select 'more' button.
    - Now select 'Portable Hotspot & Tethering'.
    - Go to 'Portable WiFi Hotspot settings'.
    - Here you can type in your desired Name.
    - It is recommended that you assign a password to secure your connection.
    - If you don't want to put a password, select 'none'.

    Now your phone is turned into a wireless router and you can search WiFi networks from other devices and select your device to access internet.

    Regards!

    hello,

    just follow these steps

    Step 1
    Go to the Droid's Home screen. You reach the Home screen by pressing the key below the screen with the icon of a house; this is the third key from the left.


    Step 2
    Press the "Menu" button to bring up the Home screen's options menu. The menu key is the one with four horizontal lines indicating lines of text; it is the second key from the left below the screen.


    Step 3
    Tap "Settings."


    Step 4
    Tap the "Wireless & networks" option. This should be the first option on your screen.


    Step 5
    Select "Tethering & portable hotspot."


    Step 6
    Select the "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot" option. The check box to its right should turn gray for a moment, and then a green checkmark will appear in it.


    Step 7
    Tap "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings" if you wish to change the settings of the hotspot. This option is not available until you turn on the hotspot initially.


    Step 8
    Select "Configure Wi-Fi hotspot." A window will pop up that allows you to change the name of the network and the network security. You can add a password to the network if you select the "WPA2 PSK" option rather than "Open."

    Hello Guest,
    Yes, the hotspot feature enables you to use your phone as a wireless router. To use it, just point to Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks>Tethering and Portable wi-fi hotspot. Now, you can use internet with the help of your phone's connection on other device like PC, Laptop, Ipad etc. You need to have a working 2g/3g internet connection. You won't be able to use the wi-fi simultaneously in your phone as well. Thank You. :-)
