What I am looking for is a way to take the internet I have available on my laptop (from using my tethered smart phone) and project that out just like a wireless router would from a modem. This way all wifi enabled devices can connect no problem.
I have done ad hoc networks to share my internet connection on my tethered laptop but not everything works like a proper wireless router would.
Laptops, phones, and tablets can connect and use the signal but my Nintendo Wii and Sony entertainment player do not.
I assume wireless TVs, printers, Chromecast (etc) will have the same issue. The peer to peer connection of a ad hoc network won't do this. The Wii actually can discover the network when searching but unable to connect. I need something that mimics what a router does and provides that wireless access point.
