The easiest way is to download and install free Connectify Hotspot Lite. It creates a WiFi Hot Spot on your computer, other devices will then see it as an available WiFi connection.

You can do it with Connectify. You can set the Hot Spot to use WPA2 or Ad Hoc with WEP or Ad Hoc with no encryption.

Why not purchase a wireless router? Then you can have wifi to all devices without needing the laptop running.
Then you can go mobile with your laptop as well.
