I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on my Desktop PC. Also, I am using a USB Modem which doesn't have any router.

I'm happy with my current speed and connection but recently I bought a new smartphone and decided to use Internet on that too (you know play store and ....).

In our country mobile Internet is too costly so I thought about creating a wifi hotspot from my PC and use that in my smartphone but after seeing almost all the tutorials and software I couldn't do it. See the pictures and details below and you might get an idea about my PC:

I'm using the following service for Internet :

I recommend trying this tutorial: How to Turn Your Windows 8 Laptop into a Wireless Access Point. If I'm not mistaken it works on Winodws 7 as well. Granted your WLan card supports it.

If you don't want to get too technical you can always try Connectify. It's pretty much just a nice GUI to do everything in the tutorial above.

Sorry but I've tried all kind of tuts and software – SirDarknight Nov 27 '13 at 7:35

Alternatively if your laptop's built in WiFi Card doesn't support broadcasting as an Access Point, you can buy a USB Wifi stick that uses a RT5370 chipset. A cheap one off ebay comes with the software to make the USB WiFi stick work as an AP, and is rather easy to use too.

Will this work : Do I need anything else than an adapter? – SirDarknight Nov 27 '13 at 7:51
That one should work fine. That's the same as the one I used on Windows 7 to create an AP – Lawrence Nov 27 '13 at 8:20
