My apartment has a very weak public WiFi signal. my vista notebook is not connecting to this public WiFi, it says signal is weak, while my win7 notebook does connect and is working OK, so i wanted to connect my vista notebook to internet using win 7 computer connection.
vista computer -> win 7 computer -> public WiFi -> internet
I tried a software "connectify" that creates virtual wireless hot spot, it says access local only on vista computer, tried turning off fire wall that didn't work either.
i also tried connecting my android phone to this virtual hot spot it keeps saying "obtaining IP address", I checked the ICS service is running that should also mean that DHCP is running. so cant identify the problem.
