I use a broadband dongle on my Windows 7. I want to expose my laptop as a wifi hotspot so that i can use internet on my samsung galaxy ace.

I have tried Connectify but my chipset is not supported so it simply make the adhoc network. Tried Bzeek. My phone get connected, but no browsing.

Any solution that you guys have?

PS: I am in no mood to root my device.

Bummer to hear Connectify didn't work for you. – Yoopergeek Jul 14 '11 at 17:48

You could try VirtualRouter, which seems to fit the bill:

I forgot to mention this in my question. It also does not work. It does not detect wireless connection to populate in its combo. – Tahir Akram Jul 5 '11 at 9:30
Could it be a driver issue? Are there any other alternative driver versions you could try that may enable this functionality? - it may be blocked somehow by design. – Ruairi Fullam Jul 5 '11 at 9:45
@Tahir Akram - I installed VirtualRouter and the wireless connection desn't show up in the combo only the ethernet connection. - Works for me (in hotel) – Dog Ears Jul 24 '11 at 13:26
