Windows 7: How to share wireless from my computer to other devices - Read desc.

How to share wireless from my computer to other devices - Read desc.

I have a wireless signal coming into my computer, not wired, I don't have a wired connection, and I need wireless for my mobile device which has wifi capabilities, but my mobile device won't see the wifi signal. I was wondering if there is any way to use my computer as a hotspot without a wired connection, for my mobile device. I was wondering if I can do anything with the "Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter" thing in my wireless connections. I don't know what to do with it, maybe this will help me in what I need. If I need another wifi card to do what I need, I have multiple usb wifi sticks. How do I share my computers wifi with my mobile device? Thanks for any help!

Have you searched for the answer, on google or here? It is called ad-hoc sharing.

You can use connectify for this also. It's supposed to work really well for this type of wireless network sharing.
