Share a Wi-Fi connection

I have a wifi connection [wifi000] and I want to share it. When I use adhoc connection to do this, I have to disconnect from my wifi000. So how can I share my current wifi connection providing another wifi connection or using a cable? I'm using windows7.

Thank you!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What is the WiFi connection you want to share a connection to? (Is it a client connection?) Why can't other machines just use that same connection? (The solution depends a lot on the problem you're trying to solve.) Also note that you can not bridge to a WiFi client connection. – David Schwartz Jul 7 '12 at 7:00

You have two choices

  1. You can check this post VirtualRouter, If you have only wifi connection in your laptop(Not connected with Ethernet) then this might prove the best option. It works with Windows 7 and Server 2008. And might need .NET framework(Not to worry Win-7 natively provide it).

  2. You may have look at this lifehacker post.

    It simply says you have to have two NIC:

    1. Ethernet: It connect your computer to internet
    2. Wifi: Now create ad-hoc network that share your internet with other wireless devices.


  • Choice 1 Will be good if you have only wifi connectivity at your network.
  • If you want to use os features and not to be dependent on 3rd party tools then go for Option2.
