How do I make my Dell Windows 7 Laptop a Wi-Fi Hotspot to use the internet on my iPad?

My modem is not Wi-Fi enabled and I don't have a hardware wireless router.

Use Connectify

http://www.connectify.me/

It also supports wpa/wpa2 psk

You can run that on your windows 7 laptop and enable the soft ap features of windows 7

Alternately you can look at the below tutorial to enable windows 7's hotspot features
