    Setting up Wi-Fi access points as mobile hotspots on Android 4.1

    As I want to avoid extra roaming charges, I am planning to access mobile hotspots through my smartphone running on Android 4.1 while going abroad. I heard that it is possible to tag Wi-Fi access points as mobile hotspots through this Android version. How can I set it up?

    Hi,
    It is very easy to use the phone as a Hotspot all you have to do is open the application drawer by pressing the menu button and then select the "Settings" icons. Inside the settings icon you will find an option as called as More under the "Wireless&Networks" menu selecting that will help you locate the option as Tethering and Portable Hotspots. There you have to select the option as "Wireless Tethering" and so make sure to change the password of the network if you are using an secured connection and this will help you connect to the network and use your Mobile's internet on other PC or other devices.
    Hope this Helps.
