Sure it is possible using this software called connectify. It's supposed to work really well.

have you used this software because my ipod connects to the network but none of the apps that require wifi update, they just say "update failed" or "not connected to internet" but i am connected to my network in settings on my ipod

Everyone says it works for them but I havn't tried it out so I'm not really sure how to fix your particular problem.

Are you using a laptop or a desktop? I would just create an ad hoc wifi network, and then bridge it from a hard connection.

Here's an interesting tool from a Microsofr MVP, Chris Pietschmann: Virtual Router - Wifi Hot Spot for Windows 7 / 2008 R2

Works fine on my 32-bit rig, never got it working on a 64-bit although it should work on both. When it works it's the simplest possible solution.

Had the same problem with that version...I used to connect my N95 via connectifyme...after they updated their software i had several connection problems such as server not found....what i did was uninstall the new version, and install the 1st version......better try it without password first, then experiment with wep or wpa...my N95 works with wep security and my N97 works with wpa...

It still isn't working, I'm unable to create the network. Can my wireless card even create the network (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 AGN). this is what happens, see attached.
