I have a desktop without a wireless network card running Windows XP and a Huawei-E8221 Wi-Fi dongle with a SIM card slot. My PC has Internet connection through Ethernet.

I want to use dongle as Wi-Fi hotspot so that I can use Internet on my Android phone.

Is it possible to do this? If so, how?


control panel>network connections>right click wireless connection>properties> click on "use windows to config my wireless network setting>click add>enter a name for your network> open> select WEP> enter a password> check “This is a computer-to-computer (ad-hoc) network; wireless access points are not used.”> click OK

  • I cannot implement your steps as my pc has no wireless network card built-in what I have is a wifi enabled usb dongle which is plug & play type so my pc is not detecting it as wireless adapter. – Manohar Prajapati Jul 25 '15 at 4:21
